Professional Development

Be a resource for your students and take advantage of City Center’s wide array of professional development workshops—all designed to meet the needs of classroom teachers, teaching artists, and college/graduate students.

Four workshop opportunities are offered to educators during the school year. During each workshop, an acclaimed performing artist leads a master class to help you create innovative and exciting lesson plans and develop practical and artistic tools for use in your classroom.

Professional development workshops are offered to educators that participate in our school-time matinees and K-12 programs during the school year (Sep – May).
