Arts Blitz

This multi-arts collaboration between Ballet Austin, Pollyanna Theatre Company and the Umlauf Sculpture Garden & Museum provides free arts workshops for teachers and students, and interactive performances to school campuses. The objective of the Arts Blitz program is to provide elementary and middle school students with an experiential and engaging arts experience.  It is our goal that each Arts Blitz project also enhances the academic process by helping students make cross-curricular connections to the world outside of school. 

Arts Blitz Performances

As part of the Arts Blitz program, Ballet Austin and Pollyanna Theatre Company produce dance dramas that are performed for students in schools and at Ballet Austin’s AustinVentures StudioTheater.
