School Partnership Program
Workshops in theater, poetry, dance and music for grades Pre-K through 12

Tilles Center’s School Partnership Program is a unique collaboration between artists and educators which uses the arts to foster critical thinking, literacy skills, creativity and problem solving.

The program involves teachers and students in participatory experiences which spark the creative process. Through active engagement in activities that are carefully co-planned with educators, students learn how to collaborate, analyze and interpret existing curriculum through arts-learning.

The program includes in-school workshops in music, dance and drama for students in pre-K through grade 12. Workshops are created to support and integrate within the existing curriculum. All projects culminate in a visit to Tilles Center for a professional performance.
