School Assemblies

East Bay Center for the Performing Arts offers an annual selection of assemblies for elementary and middle schools in the East Bay. During the pandemic, our assemblies have moved to an online platform. All interactive assemblies feature some of the Center's top faculty artists. 

Professional artists from East Bay Center present intimate or school wide interactive performances for students, highlighting the core art forms of our DEEP ROOTS WIDE WORLD curriculum: from hard driving Bebop Jazz, to Classical West African Dance and Drumming, to regional Mexican Music and Dance, Spoken Word Poetry and Voices from Spanish Language and African American Theater, to Urban Ballet, Chamber Music, and Contemporary Vocal ensembles.

Black history is not only an intrinsic part of Richmond's story, but of the United States as a whole. Join Howard Wiley, East Bay Center faculty artist, in celebrating the artistic traditions of the African Diaspora in our community. You'll watch, listen, and learn about West African music and dance, steel pan, Blues, Jazz, and Hip Hop!
