Santa Barbara Bowl Hosts 3000 Santa Barbara Students

The SBBowl is not only a world-class venue to witness live music buying a concert ticket to the SBBowl also means directly supporting outreach programs that ensure all SB County students receive performing arts experiences and education.

Kids at the Bowl is an essential program of Santa Barbara Bowl Outreach that hosts large-scale, cultural performances for Santa Barbara County students. Benefits extend far beyond the performance—they educate students on how to be a part of an audience; provide a cultural experience at a historic, community landmark; and create an opportunity to imagine careers in the arts.

As part of the Santa Barbara Bowl’s Outreach initiative focused on performing arts, and coordinated by the Children’s Creative Project, the Kids at the Bowl event hosted nearly 3,000 students for two free 45-minute educational and high-energy performances held at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Monday, April 8 .

Santa Barbara Bowl in collaboration with the Children’s Creative Project, program of the Santa Barbara County Education Office, presented The Alley Cats, a cappella group from Los Angeles, performing with the UCSB Dance Company in two free shows for Santa Barbara area public school children. 

The UCSB Dance Company, a 14-member student dance company under the direction of Delila Moseley, joined The Alley Cats on stage for six dances choreographed by Moseley. The show incorporated swing, lindy hop, salsa, (set by student Yuna Choi), twist, smooth ballroom, and modern dance into high-energy, entertaining dance numbers.

The Children’s Creative Project (CCP) brings together young people and professional artists to develop : 

  • artistic perception
  • creative expression
  • aesthetic valuing
  • an understanding of artists and the creative process
  • historical and cultural arts heritage

“These special performances are the result of wonderful collaborations between organizations dedicated to providing diverse art and cultural opportunities for children and families. We are grateful for the commitment of the Bowl Foundation, The Towbes Foundation, the City of Santa Barbara, and the Santa Barbara County Office of Arts & Culture to increase access to art and culture and make this extraordinary opportunity available to so many of our students.”

Susan Salcido, Santa Barbara County superintendent of schools
