The HARID Conservatory is pleased to offer a series of 45-minute Dance Outreach Performances for fourth- and fifth-grade students in South Palm Beach County schools. Admission is free and, for those in public schools, HARID also covers the costs of buses and drivers.

HARID’s Dance Outreach Performances provide a special opportunity for students to experience a high-quality dance performance, learn and practice proper theater etiquette, and exercise their behavioral responsibilities outside the classroom.

Curriculum connections:
Dance • Music • Theater • Life skills

All Dance Outreach Performances are approximately 45 minutes in length and feature HARID’s holiday tradition:

Divertissements from The Nutcracker, Act II

HARID’s colorful production of The Nutcracker includes all the magical and exciting dances from Act II including Spanish Chocolates, Chinese Tea, Arabian Coffee, the Russian Trepak, Dance of the Mirlitons, Waltz of the Flowers, and the majestic Grand Pas de Deux!
