Introducing Art Performance Series

General Information
The Introducing Art Performance Series for school-age children was envisioned as a way to bring music, dance, art, and theater to public school students whose exposure to the arts has been greatly limited.  The series showcases multi-cultural performers during the school year.  Shows are reasonably priced at $2 per child and $5 per family group and offered free to afterschool groups who call ahead to reserve space.

Past performances have included:

  • Classic fairy tale puppetry by Tanglewood Marionettes
  • Hula dancing with Polynesian Fusion
  • Capoeira and drumming with Deraldo Ferreira & The Afro Brazilian Ensemble

Annual Events

Hip Hop Festival

The 2016 Hip Hop Festival will be held on Thursday, February 23rd, 2:00-3:00 pm.

Introducing Art also features the popular Annual Hip Hop Festival every February vacation week.  Billed as “an age-appropriate performance of a style of music children love” and “a great way for students from across Cambridge to interact [and] a networking opportunity for young performers,” the Agassiz Baldwin Community Hip Hop Festival is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.

Theater

In April, Agassiz Baldwin Afterschool children enjoy a show at Wheelock Family Theater or other local theaters. During April Vacation Week this year children will visit the Puppet Showplace Theater.
