Nashville Ballet strives to promote dance as an essential and inspiring element of our community with wide-reaching and innovative educational dance programming for schools, businesses and community groups throughout Middle Tennessee.

Through public and private funding, the Community Engagement initiative of Nashville Ballet strives to expose children, teens and adults to the artistry, beauty and athleticism of dance by providing unique dance experiences that cultivate an interest in the art form of ballet.

Each of our school curriculum-based programs meet many of the developmental and academic standards set forth by the state of Tennessee and Metropolitan Nashville Public School (MNPS) system and is designed to appeal to the various learning styles and needs of all ages.

Program Title: FRANK

Program Type: Arts Curriculum, Arts Integration, Arts Appreciation

Program Description:

In brand-new ballet Frank, a disfigured young boy named Frank N. Stein goes to a new school and realizes that he looks different than the other kids. As Frank navigates through the stereotypical cast of high school characters, he uncovers the insecurities that live within us all—and that we’re more alike than we are different.

This ballet and post performance discussion are designed to evoke dialogue between students and staff to address social and emotional challenges that teens experience daily. Instructional materials accompany this program to continue the conversation and provide supportive tools.
