Festivals and Events

Our youth education festivals and events provide an opportunity for young people from a vast array of cultures and backgrounds to find a common bond through the performing arts. The YouthWorks Festival and Teen Artist Exchange are structured to treat young artists with the respect given to professionals. They participate in the same process as the professional projects produced by BAX. All programs provide young people with options and choices in further education and careers. They are mentored by and learn from professional choreographers, playwrights, dancers, lighting designers and production staff and have exposure to the marketing and press aspects of producing a concert.
