This flyer promoted the Jazz North Jazz Dance Company’s involvement in the “Artists-in-the-Schools” program sponsored by the Greater Columbus Arts Council. The program brought performing artists like Barbara Burrows, Director of the Worthington Civic Ballet and Jazz North Dance Company into grade schools throughout central Ohio. The program provided students with a taste of dance education that they would normally not have had exposure to in the schools’ physical education curriculum.
Miss Burrows was trained locally by Duard Farquhar and Jorg Fasting, directors of the Capital City Ballet Company and also studied with leading dancers of Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, New York City Ballet, the Martha Graham Dance Company, faculty of the Juilliard School of Music, Carnegie Hall, the American Dance Machine, and the Gus Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago. Miss Burrows was a founding member of the Worthington Arts Council. Locally she instructed hundreds of Worthington area children in dance and theater over a course of forty years. She was known for her authentic choreography and talent as a seamstress, having designed and sewed dance costumes for her dance companies. Her dance companies performed over 700 shows in Worthington and Columbus, including the "Artists-In-Schools" touring programs with the Ohio Theatre for Youth and the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
