ARC Entertainment Company and Exceptional Children’s Foundation (ECF), an organization that provides the highest quality services for children and adults who are challenged with developmental, learning and emotional disabilities – empowering them to reach their greatest potential, are joining forces to provide monthly live ballet instruction to its students who are learning remotely with an interactive program designed to teach and engage the students of ECF Kayne Eras School throughout the fall semester.
The first class will kick off on Wednesday, August 26, 2020, at 11AM and will be instructed through an exclusive dedicated ECF Zoom virtual meeting room and will include a short class instruction, a live performance from ARC Entertainment Company principals and a Q&A so that students can interact directly with the dancers. The series will continue monthly and will engage students from K-12th grade.
The principal dancers of Arc Entertainment Company Kirsten Bloom Allen, Tigran Sargsyan, Magnus Christofferson have designed an original curriculum that will teach the students but also encourage them to participate during their virtual interactive instruction. Kirsten, Magnus, and Tigran are the Directors of ARC Entertainment Company which is their creative concept for merging dance with rock music, art, and cinema.
“We are excited to offer the gift of dance to the students who are looking for an outlet to move and motivate through these difficult and unprecedented times,” said Kirsten Bloom Allen, founder of ARC Entertainment Company. “With no plans for live performances to return anytime soon, our goal is educate and inform but also provide a bit of fun for those who are stuck at home and need to get their bodies moving.”
“ECF is committed to providing ongoing exceptional education and enrichment for our K-12 students at ECF Kayne Eras School, as we meet the challenges of this current pandemic,” said Scott Bowling, ECF President and CEO. “This partnership provides an exciting opportunity for our students and families, and we are thrilled and grateful to ARC Entertainment Company on their behalf.”
