Library Dances is a 501(c)3 nonprofit in Santa Barbara, CA that works to improve students' kinetic understanding, literary comprehension, and self-esteem by teaching them dance and literature.
As part of State Street Ballet's outreach programming, we bring professional dancers into the classroom to provide positive role models and one on one mentoring.
Our goal is to make theater, dance, and literature relevant and accessible to thousands of students whether onstage or in the audience.
Coming Soon - Spring 2022
Library Dances partners with Opera San Luis Obispo and State Street Ballet to produce a bilingual video based on California Visual and Performing Arts Content Standards. This interactive digital experience will take audiences behind the scenes in rehearsals and will explore the choreographic process, as well as all of the aspects needed to create a fully produced live performance. This video will be accompanied by a bilingual study guide and will be shared across San Louis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ojai school districts.
