Through our Educational Outreach Programs we provide high-quality arts-in-education programs for New York City public schools that address Common Core State Standards and the NYC Department of Education’s Curriculum Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts. Town Hall customizes each program to suit a school’s curriculum needs.

Town Hall Educational Outreach Programs annually serve over 8,000 students in the five boroughs through theatre, stagecraft, dance, music and visual arts residencies. Town Hall teaching artists work closely with classroom teachers to plan and coordinate residencies that strengthen curriculum connections. Each residency culminates with student performances that showcase students’ skills for families, school administration, and peers.
