Eisemann Educates is the education and outreach component of Eisemann Center Presents and enables the Eisemann Center to be more to the community than just an extraordinary rental facility for performing arts and corporate events. From its inception, one of the goals of the Eisemann Center has been to make it a place where thousands of children and youth have their eyes opened with wonder by the beauty and spectacle of the performing arts — a place where teamwork, self-esteem and creativity are encouraged and developed. However, we cannot do it alone. It is the generous contributions from our corporate partners and “Friends” that make it possible to continue serving our young people with the very best in arts entertainment and education initiatives. The outreach initiatives of Eisemann Educates have made it possible for over 11,000 children, youth and adults from underserved populations to have access to the performing arts through performance tickets enabling them to experience the magic of live entertainment at the Eisemann Center.
The program began in 2004 with a Paul Taylor Dance Company Master Class; the weeklong Woven Harmony residency by artists Rebecca and Robert Bluestone and a series of workshops with Ethos Percussion Group in local schools. The program has offered such diverse activities as Master Classes with Garth Fagan Dance and Pilobolus; post-performance Question and Answer (Q&A) sessions with the Duke Elllington Orchestra and Garth Fagan; and on-site residency workshops at schools throughout the North Texas area. Other arts education opportunities have been provided through a community partnership with the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), which has enabled Eisemann Educates to produce residency activities with the Alexander String Quartet, classical guitarists The Romeros, The King's Singers, Canadian Brass, Chris Brubeck's Triple Play, Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company, The Swingle Singers, the Nesbraska Theatre Caravan and the artists of Sossy Mechanics and Paul Taylor 2.
