Art-Reach is known for its work in promoting accessibility to all things arts and culture in the Greater Philly area.
It’s also been active in partnering with other organizations that share the same ideals and want to make sure people with disabilities are able to enjoy even the most eccentric of events.
Earlier this year, the local nonprofit partnered with Pennsylvania Ballet to:
- Help the ballet offer sensory-friendly performances for families with autistic children, and
- Help students with disabilities take part in learning some ballet themselves.
Six high school students with disabilities from Saint Katherine Day School visited the Pennsylvania Ballet studios back in February and after 10 weeks of rehearsing, they performed an original choreographed piece called “I Am” for Art-Reach’s annual Cultural Access Awards.
Now you can see the behind-the-scenes of the whole experience via a documentary, also titled “I Am,” that’s premiering this Tuesday evening at the Prince Theater, where you’ll get to see the film and ask questions of the participants and filmmaker Glenn Holsten and his team from FreshFly Productions.
