ACHF Arts Access ACHF Arts Education
We will provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans through our 2015 production of the Nutcracker by providing school, special needs and public shows. We will measure our outcomes primarily through data collection for each performance, keeping track of attendance, and ticket sales. Outcomes will also be measured by looking at our audition numbers for the 2016-2017 season.
Our goal for this proposal was to bring 7 performances of the holiday classic to students, the special needs community, and the larger community, each production included talented and committed dancers as well as Guest Artists. We were able to invite 3 guest artists not affiliated with Rochester Dance Company and with the performance of our Artistic Director audiences enjoyed 4 professional dancers on the stage. We exceeded expectations in audience attendance and for one performance our young dancers enjoyed the experience of performing for an audience of close to 600. Over 2700 children and adults enjoyed the 2015 production of the Nutcracker.
