Our flagship in-school program, Classical Kids, reaches thousands of elementary and middle school students in more than 50 schools within the greater Capital Region. The program brings professional dancers and musicians into schools for an interactive assembly that introduces students to their art forms, teaches them about an upcoming performance at SPAC, and offers each student a free ticket to a selected performance during SPAC’s summer classical season. All students that complete the program receive a free Student Lawn Pass.
WHAT IS A STUDENT LAWN PASS?
A Student Lawn Pass grants the student, and an accompanying adult, free lawn admission to all ballet and orchestra performances at SPAC until their projected year of graduation from High School (excluding the annual Ballet Gala fundraiser). Please check our classical season calendar for scheduled dates and performance times.
When using your pass, there is no need to visit the SPAC box office. Simply walk right up to an entry gate before a ballet or orchestra performance (specified above), show the gate attendants your pass, and they will admit you onto the SPAC grounds.
