22/23 Education Series

Brought to you by TD Bank Group

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is thrilled to present our new season of exceptional performances for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. These 15 performances have been specifically curated to inspire a lifelong appreciation for the performing arts while meeting the expectations of the Ontario Arts Curriculum.

For as little as $10 per student, our 22/23 Education Series offers your students a window into a dynamic world of dance, theatre, music and science. Performances are supported by a study guide and additional teacher resources. Additional workshops for students, professional development for teachers and special events will be made available throughout the year.

A visit to BPAC is a meaningful way to increase your students’ cultural development and to nurture an appreciation of creativity in all its forms. Throughout our 22/23 Season are a collection of performances that fuse opera and fairy tale, celebrate Indigenous music and storytelling, explore our planet from new perspectives, while showcasing literary favourite such as Alice In Wonderland and The Ugly Duckling.

Community Workshops

Burlington has a substantial pool of artistic talent in the community, and The Burlington Performing Arts Centre plays a pivotal role in impacting the artistic growth and development of our local artistic community. As part of our mission to nurture and support local artists we have launched a Public Education & Outreach Series which provides access and opportunities for local artists, arts organizations and audience members.

At BPAC we aim to develop comprehensive, impactful and accessible learning experiences for all ages, and we are committed to fostering artistic appreciation, development and participation through our Public Education & Outreach Series. These initiatives are aimed at developing artistic practice for local artists and providing enhanced arts experiences for our audiences.

By offering enhanced artistic learning opportunities for our community, performing arts disciplines will become more accessible and audience members can maximize their enjoyment of our performances. Public educational opportunities include post-performance talk backs, pre-performance lectures, master classes and workshops.

Golden Ticket Program

BPAC's Golden Ticket

BPAC’s Golden Ticket Program distributes FREE theatre tickets to students and families who would otherwise not be able to access the performing arts.

At The Burlington Performing Arts Centre we believe that every child deserves access to meaningful cultural and artistic experiences. We believe that creativity, and the capacity for creative expression, is essential to the lives of young people. The arts open new doors and teaches children skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. The arts are what make us human, and what connect us to the world, to each other.
