Parsons Dance excels at performing a wide variety of residency and community outreach activities nationally and internationally each season. Parsons Dance positively impacts children, students and communities through the following activities:

Master classes in modern, ballet, and jazz technique are offered at the beginning, intermediate and advanced levels for preprofessional, professional and recreational dancers.

Parsons Dance lecture-demonstrations are suitable for all ages (K–12, post-secondary and adult) and include demonstration of repertory and/or elements of production.

Parsons Dance workshops and seminars focus on a variety of topics that include nutrition, fitness and the art of dance. Post-show discussions provide audience members an opportunity to ask questions about Parsons Dance and its repertory.

A complimentary Parsons Dance Study Guide, designed in collaboration with the Ferst Center for the Arts, serves as an educational dance resource for teachers and students.
