Arts education has the ability to take students beyond the standard classroom environment through active and engaged learning practices. Whether it be virtual reality, digital platforms, or real-time in-person field trips, this type of approach to teaching and learning through the arts is an essential component of a well-rounded education. For students, it has the ability to enhance their imagination, memory, physical senses, while building confidence, communication skills, and focus. Field trips provide an opportunity for students to see the world in a new way offering cultural connections and a greater relationship to one’s own community. Act One partners with Title 1 schools and arts organizations to help coordinate these meaningful and powerful connections.

“Act One has big muscles. They pull open Arizona’s theater and museum doors extra-wide for nearly 50,000 of Arizona’s underprivileged youth a year — eliminating financial and operational barriers — helping them have an opportunity to make meaningful memories and experience new emotions through the language of dance and color on the professional stage. There isn’t a bow big enough put around the gift that Act One gives our community each year.”
