TPAC EDUCATION directs programs that bring exciting
arts opportunities and learning to a diverse audience,
from pre-school to adult.

Humanities Outreach in Tennessee (HOT) presents an annual season of outstanding professional performances of theater, dance and music to complement curriculum objectives and to provide a rich variety of artistic and cultural expression for school groups. To make these experiences more fulfilling and accessible for all students, HOT provides teacher workshops, in-school visits, and post-performance seminars as well as subsidized tickets, travel grants, and logistical support. All teachers receive specific performance guidebooks containing lesson plans, plot synopses, historical background information and activity suggestions that can be used in the classroom before and after the performance.

The program introduces the collaborative art of musical theatre; strengthens arts programming; develops partnerships among students, faculty, staff and the greater Nashville community. Participating schools receive (at no cost) a performance license to any of the Disney activities, accompaniment and guide vocal CDs and a choreography DVD; and support from
