Celebrate The Alloy School journey with our Showcase and Let’s Move Family Dance Party on at Kelly Strayhorn Theater. Each class will present material from their class session on the mainstage, after which we move to the lobby for family beats and community crafts.

The Alloy School is made possible with support from the Arts Equity Reimagined Collective Action for Re-Imagining Vibrancy Fund grant, a funding initiative managed by New Sun Rising; the Henry C. Frick Educational Fund of the Buhl Foundation, The Grable Foundation, and the McElhattan Foundation. Kelly Strayhorn Theater is supported in part by the taxpayers of Allegheny County through a public grant from the Allegheny Regional Asset District (RAD). RAD works here. The Alloy School is relaunched in collaboration with PearlArts as part of the PearlArts @ KST Mutual-Aid Residency.
