Inspired by the award-winning Student Enrichment for the Arts (SEAS) program, Smart Stage Matinees are educational performances, produced by professional companies for students in grades Pre K–12. They are curriculum-driven and aligned with state standards. Through the Smart Stage Matinee program thousands of students have had the opportunity to attend performances at the Broward Center and its affiliate venues that include dance, music, drama, musical theater, science shows and more.
Teachers and parents can access free study guides online. These tools are an excellent way to prepare students in advance to make the most of an upcoming performance and offer ways to engage students in post-show learning activities.
In addition to performances, the Broward Center Education Departments offers workshops, master classes, camps and unique special programs for students, educators and families.
