Careers in the Performing Arts: Come Fly Away
1:00 to 2:00 p.m.
Introduce your students to a variety of careers and company members from the musical - Come Fly Away. Come Fly Away is the new Broadway musical that brings together the legendary music of Frank Sinatra and the creative vision of Tony Award-winner Twyla Tharp (Movin’ Out). This one-of-a-kind experience combines the seductive vocals of “Ol’ Blue Eyes” with the sizzling sound of a live on-stage big band and the visceral thrill of Tharp’s choreography. As 15 of the world’s best dancers tell the story of four couples falling in and out of love, you will experience the exhilaration of a first kiss, the excitement of a first dance, and the bittersweet moments of a first good-bye in a world of sparkling romance and astonishing beauty.
Featuring a panel of principal dancers, musicians and sound crew members, students will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of the skills and competencies related to specific career fields in the performing arts directly from Broadway professionals. Teachers benefit from bringing professionals right into the classroom through the technology of distance learning! Our Teacher’s Guide connects the experience to the classroom curriculum.
