Introduction to Performing Arts

This point-of-entry program broadens opportunities for students to experience the performing arts, often as first-time audience members. City Center arranges for school groups and families to attend live shows on our mainstage and beyond. Students are introduced to new art forms and respond to and analyze the productions they see, using new vocabulary and materials provided by City Center. Teachers are provided with a study guide to contextualize the themes of the show and make curricular connections for their classes. Students also learn about audience behavior and develop an appreciation for the performing arts. The Introduction serves as a primer for our more in-depth programming.


1 professional performance, 1 study guide per teacher and 1 professional development workshop, when applicable


$2 per ticket
