Educators, students, and proud supporters of the performing arts,

Welcome to the WorldStrides OnStage blog! Our dedication to the performing arts goes back nearly 50 years. WorldStrides was started by a middle school teacher looking to offer students hands-on, real-world experience beyond the walls of a classroom.

Today, we are proud to offer a robust lineup of prestigious events. If you can dream it, we can make it happen! Choirs and instrumental groups can learn under the direction of world-class conductors, ensembles take the stage at Carnegie Hall, marching bands take the field for a halftime show performance at the Sugar Bowl, cheerleaders stunt for the crowds of the TaxSlayer Bowl, and young dancers get a taste of the professional life doing a flash mob at Universal Studios.

This blog is a place for us to share our stories and expertise with you. Whether you are part of a choir, band, orchestra, dance team, or cheerleading squad, we hope you’ll enjoy stories from our WorldStrides family!
