In-School Performance Program

In 2015, during Nevada Reading Week and in partnership with the education and outreach department at The Smith Center, NBT produced an In-School Performance Program entitled “Gwendolyn the Graceful Pig.” The author, David Ira Rottenburg, reads his adorable children’s book while five NBT dancers make the story come to life. A question and answer session with the dancers follows each performance and schools are given copies of the book for their library. This hugely successful program reached 6,190 CCSD students in 10 elementary schools in its first year and has continued every year since in 10 CCSD elementary schools during the month of March.
