“Kids take really well to our brand of choreography.
It’s a lot of fun. It’s very creative.
A lot of it is just playing and making stuff together
and really being a team.”

Students at several Boston-area schools and organizations were treated to a visit from Pilobolus last week as part of our Artist Connections program. Ahead of their Celebrity Series performances, dancers from the famed company visited Sumner Boys & Girls Club in Roslindale, Boston Renaissance Charter School in Hyde Park, and Rafael Hernández K-8 School in Roxbury to lead creative movement workshops.
The Celebrity Series photography team was on hand to capture all the fun at Rafael Hernández K-8 School, where fourth graders learned to solve movement challenges with one of the most playful & creative dance companies around.
We want to extend a special thanks to Emily Kent, Education and Community Engagement Manager for Pilobolus, for all her work in facilitating these workshops for our community partners.
The Dance Series is sponsored by the Stephanie L. Brown Foundation, the Royal Little Family Foundation and the Cynthia and John S. Reed Foundation.
