Nebula Dance Lab


School Matinee Program features two Unique programs: The Inquisitor and Through the Looking Glass. 

In addition to our main performance, Nebula successfully performs annually for 1200 children, chaperon's, and teachers with the generous support of The Lobero, Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation, Santa Barbara Education Foundation and Community Arts Grant. Our programming for this production provided priority to Title I schools and included attendance by Franklin, Adelante Charter, Adams School, Peabody Charter, Open Alternative, Cleveland, Roosevelt, Harding, Washington, SB Comm Academy, 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!

The Inquisitor created collaboratively and debuted in 2015, 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.

Through the Looking Glass, Nebula's newest work premiered in 2017. A compelling new work inspired by Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice’s imaginative and curious world comes to life through intricately woven choreography by Meredith Cabaniss, Devyn Duex, and Karyn Laver, featuring collaborations with The Dance Network and SELAH dance collective. To breath depth and color into the world of Alice, Nebula once again collaborated with composer Adam Phillips to create an original score, which will be played live by Santa Barbara Folk Orchestra small ensemble, and unique visual art by Meredith Cabaniss.
