Wonderbound’s education programs bring dance to elementary and junior high schools across the greater Denver area. Built around the signature choreography of Artistic Director Garrett Ammon and Wonderbound’s dynamic dancers, these programs serve 24,000 at-risk youth annually by providing interactive in-school performances throughout the Denver metro area.
These highly interactive performance experiences are newly crafted each season and give children the opportunity to experience the joy of collaboration. Students journey into their own imaginations by creating new movement on their peers and Wonderbound’s company artists. Wonderbound presents nearly sixty of these programs annually.
In addition, Wonderbound presents in-theater performances for Title I elementary schools at the Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter School. This program provides many of these children their first opportunity to experience a live theater performance. Wonderbound provides these performances to 2,400 students each year.
