Getting Started with the Arts
In partnership with area universities and school districts, GDAC is developing programs that reach students in the school. One of the benefits of the partnership is our ability to reach all students by eliminating the barriers of financial need or accessibility that some times prohibit children from enjoying arts programming. Every year 12,000+ students enjoy these programs.
This program is provided in collaboration with the University of North Texas, Texas Woman's University, and the Festival Ballet of North Central Texas.
