For more than two decades, education and engagement have been central to our mission, and we continue to strive to enrich the lives of our school partners and our community. From the live performances on stage to the surrounding engagement programming, the LBC presents a variety of experiences that are guaranteed to enrich, educate and entertain our entire community.
Our Education Through the Arts program serves to deepen the educational experiences of our school partners through a broad range of learning opportunities. From hands-on learning for our students to professional development for our teachers, the LBC presents researched-based programs that highlight arts integration, standards-based arts curriculum, and experiences with professional artists. At the LBC, we believe the arts are a dynamic tool for teaching and learning in all core subjects and a highly effective method for making learning engaging, impactful and fun.
Our School Shows target grades from PK to 12. These performances align with and support state mandated curriculum in all core subjects.
Set the Stage offers free online resources, including study guides, to prepare students for their trip to see a live performance at the LBC.
