We are gratified to give back to the communities that support us, through free performance at fundraisers for community organizations, such as the Santa Barbara Birth Center, Center Stage Theater, Girls Rock SB, and through our outreach program, which provides movement workshops and performances at local preschools and with Everybody Dance Now!, a local dance education non-profit organization.

Nebula spent time over the past few seasons to develop a kids matinee program working directly with the schools to provide them a unique opportunity for their student's to experience a professional performance opportunity in a theater setting. Launched in 2014 at Center Stage Theater, Nebula was thrilled to expand the program into The Lobero to a sold out performance November 2015. BIG thanks to The Lobero Fund, Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation, IM=X Pilates SB, and individual sponsors/donors. 

Nebula’s performance program intends to incorporate the teaching curriculum correlation required for schools to integrate academic learning and arts exposure, making this program a more diversified experience for their students.


The Inquisitor – Kid’s Matinee

In addition to our main performance, Nebula successfully performed TheInquisitor for 600 children, chaperon's, and teachers with the generous support of The Lobero, Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation, and Community Arts Grant. Our programming for this production provided priority to Title I schools and included attendance by Adelante Charter, Adams School, and Santa Barbara Charter. 

It also included a teacher pre-show worksheet, parent/student prep packet, and post-show worksheet/project. As a testament to our impact to area schools, we learned that approximately 60% of the student audience had never been to a theater before, and approximately 70% of the students had never seen a dance production before. How great to be able to enrich the lives of so many children!

Created collaboratively, Nebula pushed the choreography to new places resulting in a cohesive blend of ambitious technical dance and intricate signature partnering. Danced to a new original score by Adam Phillips and played live by Adam's Mission Creek Trio, The Inquisitor included scenery of original artwork by Shelby Lynn Joyce, which was projected as a backdrop throughout the show.
