Connecting the Arts to Learning
through Music and Movement

Inland Pacific Ballet is pleased to provide the following Educational Study Guides and Powerpoint presentations that include pre- and post-visit classroom activities for grades K-12 and information related to each production, dance and ballet.

Study guides for The Nutcracker and Beauty and the Beast have been aligned to the California State Content Standards for Dance, California Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, and the new California English Language Development Standards. Earlier study guides for The Little Mermaid, and Cinderella identify the California State Content Standards and will be updated in the future.

Every effort has been made to provide accurate information and helpful
resources including appropriate video links and other
online resources. We hope you find these useful
additions to the classroom learning experience
and welcome your comments and suggestions.
Support for these resources was provided in
part by the National Endowment for the Arts
and the Claremont Community Foundation.
