Educators at the Hop

Educators at the Hop

Open your students' minds and hearts with powerful performing arts.

On account of health concerns, our youth programs are currently not on sale. Please check back for more information as we develop practices and policies to safely serve young audiences.

Some of our most joyous, long-lasting learning involves the performing arts, which is why school standards call for incorporating the arts into education. The Hop offers diverse ways to help educators meet those goals and further their own training. Introduce your students to stunning artistry and new perspectives through affordably priced tickets to world-class music, theater and dance. Engage in master classes and workshops that let you learn from artists at the top of their fields. Invite Dartmouth student volunteers into your classroom for engaging, curriculum-driven arts activities.
