Youth Educational Performances
String Theory's outreach program includes a concert format kids oriented performance that includes audience participation in the form of playing the long string harps, percussion and dancing. The theme of the performance is The Physics of Sound & Movement. It explores concepts of physics including compression waves and longitudinal vibrations and centrifugal force and rotational inertia. Kids are invited up to join String Theory in creating a piece of music and dance on the spot. Everyone will participate rhythmically by clapping, stamping and vocalizing. The program will finish with a Q&A.
Performance Workshops / Residencies / Master Classes
String Theory has residency and workshop programs for students from pre-school through college/university age and adults and seniors. Programs include instrument building, movement for actors, contemporary dance, voice, composing for film, the relationship between dance movement + architecture, drum circles and a variety of other options.
Our performance workshop results in a performance created by utilizing one art form to inspire and create another form. This circle of art keeps reinvigorating itself to culminate in a performance piece.
Participants will experience an intensive creative workshop where they will explore the relationship between music, movement and visual art.

The goals of this program are to facilitate an environment where kids can explore their creativity, imagination & cognitive abilities by utilizing music, movement, the visual arts and innovative play.
By exploring the fine arts, kids are developing their education in humanities.
