Youth Groups Wanted for International Young Performers’ Tours
Creative Connections, a US organisation, is looking for quality dance, singing, instrumental music and theatre/drama youth groups from around the world, who would like to be selected for upcoming International Young Performers’ Tours.
Successful applicants are given the opportunity, over a 10 -18 day USA tour, to share the richness of their dance, music, storytelling and culture with thousands of elementary, middle, and high schools students and teachers in New York and Connecticut. The groups give school performances and conduct classroom workshops at schools and art centers.
During the tour youth performers and two adult chaperones live with local families in their homes in Fairfield County, CT. Creative Connections provides air and land expenses, including medical insurance, for each member of the group.
Troupe members will be ambassadors for their country during their US tour. The International Young Performers’Tour furthers Creative Connections‘ mission to connect young people in the US with their peers around the world to foster greater awareness, understanding and appreciation of one another’s cultures.
