At STREB, all partnerships are thoughtfully undertaken, as we work closely with our partners to develop a program that meets the needs and interests of their communities. Some partnerships are more action based, focused on experiencing the physicality of PopAction, creation, and choreography, while others are focused on arts appreciation with a rehearsal visit and discussion with Elizabeth Streb and the dancers.

SLAM SHOW INCLUSIVES

We were excited to welcome students from Usher’s New Look to take part in a SLAM Show Inclusive this past May, 2023! Students were welcomed to a performance of STREB’s TIME MACHINE, plus a post-show action experience. Participants had the opportunity to meet and talk with STREB’s Action Hero performers and  take part in an experiential PopAction class where they tried out some of the techniques they’d just witnessed.

THIS PROGRAM IS SUPPORTED, IN PART, BY PUBLIC FUNDS FROM THE NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CITY COUNCIL.

FIELD TRIPS

Elementary, middle and high school classes, university and community groups come to SLAM for an immersive experience that introduces participants to all things SLAM — open rehearsals, discussion with company members, behind-the-scenes tech tours and classes in PopAction technique and circus arts and popcorn!

Arrange a group visit to a STREB EXTREME ACTION rehearsal. All Company rehearsals are free and open to the public, but a group visit can be arranged to also include a focused conversation with Elizabeth Streb and the Action Heroes where your group will get a peek into the creative process.

IN SCHOOL RESIDENCIES

Each year, STREB collaborates with schools and community groups both at their homes and at SLAM to design programs that encourage participants to explore, exchange, create and connect.

Semester and year-long residencies allow students to participate in weekly sessions in school—scaffolding on a dance or a physical education curriculum—with a team of STREB Action Heroes. School residencies may culminate in a field trip or a performance for peers, teachers and families.

THIS PROGRAM IS SUPPORTED, IN PART, BY THE NEW YORK STATE COUNCIL ON THE ARTS WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR AND THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE.
