Over its 30-year history, Muse Machine has been acclaimed both locally and nationally, by educators, students and families, the President of the United States, and the National Endowment for the Arts, for enriching the creative and academic lives of thousands of young people across the Miami Valley. Muse Machine artist-educators are in schools (Pre K-12) almost every day of the school year, helping students understand aspects of math, science, history, language arts, or any subject through tailored creative arts programs. Muse also introduces young people to the top performances and artists from across the globe via discounted ticket programs, workshops, and road trips. Muse musicals and concerts provide outstanding pre-professional theatrical opportunities, some of the largest productions in the state! Whether performing on stage, creating a masterpiece with a paintbrush, or working behind the scenes to make someone else’s work come alive, Muse Machine inspires students to become more complete individuals through a multifaceted arts presence. The goal is to introduce kids of all ages to various forms of art and show them how creativity and artistic expression can make a difference in their lives. In addition, year-long professional development excursions for teachers continually equip and motivate many of the area’s best teachers to think outside the box. Muse Machine serves 70,000 students and their teachers in 10 counties in southwestern Ohio. This Dayton Original deserves a colossal BRAVO!
