At Lincoln Center Education, we believe that music, theater, dance, and visual arts are all pathways to learning skills critical to success in life. LCE's approach begins with each individual's innate ability to respond to works of art—processes that can heighten perception, ignite out-of-the-box thinking, and challenge preconceived notions. Our mission is to enrich the lives of students, educators, and lifelong learners by providing opportunities for engagement with the arts on stage, in the classroom, online, and in the community. We acknowledge our privilege as a large cultural institution receiving both public and private funding, and we are thus committed to making the arts accessible to all and working towards sustainable and just practices. Over the last 40 years, more than 20 million people have engaged with Lincoln Center’s myriad offerings through our programs.
