Student Discovery Series

Great performing arts experiences for students of all ages! Our weekday Student Discovery series provides opportunities to see professional dance, theatre and music artists, expanding minds and making connections across life, curriculum and the arts. Performances are approximately one-hour long and most feature a post-show conversation with the artists.
