Classroom Workshops


Classroom workshops are designed by the New Victory Education Team for students to actively explore the art form and themes they will see on the New Victory stage, bridging the gap between audience and arts participation. Facilitated by a two member teaching team, these workshops deepen the students’ experience as an audience member while also providing opportunities to create, watch, reflect and connect. 

All New Victory Education Partners are offered free pre- and/or post-performance workshops for each production they attend.

Classroom Workshop Requirements

 
  • The maximum number of students we can work within a single workshop is 35. This is essentially one class at a time.
  • Workshops are approximately 45 to 60 minutes per session.
  • SPACE: A classroom with moveable desks, a gymnasium or an auditorium that will allow the students to move safely in the space and accommodate full participation.
  • We do require the use of the board/chalk or chart paper/markers and sometimes a CD player. We will communicate other requests in workshop confirmation email. The teaching team will bring their own materials.
All Classroom Workshop scheduling will be arranged with New Victory Education Partners by email within the month prior to the scheduled performance date. Ticket orders must be confirmed prior to workshop booking. All classroom workshops are subject to availability. A travel expense fee may apply to schools outside the five boroughs.

Teaching Artists-in-Residence
Partner schools can also request a more extensive series of workshops where the same teaching artist team can work with a group of students and their teacher(s) to deeply explore a New Victory production. A five-session series would include a pre-performance workshop, post-performance workshop and three creativity sessions. Teaching Artists-in-Residence can design the series of workshops to blend the New Victory Education curriculum with teacher goals and student needs for a more comprehensive exploration of the art form skills and production themes while making academic and personal connections. Participating teachers also gain valuable, firsthand experience working and planning with the artists in their classrooms.
