Education & Community
Serving tens of thousands of learners of all ages

Tilles Center is committed to bringing the arts beyond the stage and into the community by welcoming learners of all ages. All of our programs share a common goal: to allow participants to experience the arts firsthand and develop a greater awareness of how the arts relate to our lives and the world around us.

The focus is on providing arts experiences to underserved communities — from low-income school districts and those on the autism spectrum to local seniors. Programs include weekday matinee performances for student field trips, school partnerships, artists-in-residence, sensory friendly experiences, dance classes for those with Parkinson's disease and master classes.

Arts Education Programs are made possible, in part, by the Gilbert and Rose Tilles Endowment for Arts Education.
Additional funding provided by: The Barbara Bell Cumming Charitable Trust, The Fay J. Lindner Foundation, Sandra L. and Steven P. Harris, Salvatore and Mary Ranieri, and Bethpage Federal Credit Union.
