Promoting education is one of the core values of the South Orange Performing Arts Center and an integral part of our mission. At the heart of our commitment lies the belief that learning in and through the arts can serve as a powerful tool for student achievement in the classroom and in life. Our arts education programming offers a wide range of opportunities for both students and teachers to explore the arts through performances and workshops. We hope that you will join us as we work toward improving the lives of all through arts in education.
