To enhance the Lincoln Center at the Movies experience for audiences of all ages, Lincoln Center Education has created interactive guides to accompany each Great American Dance screening. The guides are tailored for various audiences for use by: teachers, families with children, after-school programs, and lifelong learners. The guides use videos, readings, images, and participatory activities to provide information about each company and work, including historical context, music, choreography, and design, to encourage discussion prior to and after seeing the performance. To access the study guide for each of the summer encore presentations, visit LincolnCenterAtTheMovies.org/education.
