Numerous studies have shown that participation in the arts promotes positive academic, social, and emotional development in students. Our school programs support local educational institutions in providing invaluable arts enrichment opportunities to all students. Programs typically include a school day assembly, field trip, or residency along with free tickets to a performance at SPAC.
Our flagship in-school program, Classical Kids, reaches 10,000+ students annually in more than 70 elementary and middle schools in the Adirondack, Saratoga, and Capital Regions.
The SPAC Dance Residency is a fully-immersive arts education program that will give young people the opportunity to experience life-enhancing benefits through the art of dance.
