A powerful, equitable arts learning program

Developed by FirstWorks to give students of all abilities and backgrounds the opportunity to experience world class performing arts.

Firsts for All provides customized pre- and post-interactions framing live performance experiences with some of the best creative forces of our time in jazz, dance, and international circus arts.
“The hands-on workshop conducted with our students was a wonderful opportunity to bring different facets of the student body together. It allowed students to learn more about themselves as they interacted with movement, body language and dance with the talented members of the Urban Bush Women. The dancers were very skilled with our students and seemed to know how to reach each of them, despite the diverse ages and skill levels in the room. Thank you!”
