Founded 140 years ago, 92nd Street Y is a world-class performing arts center presenting classical, jazz, popular and world music and a wide variety of dance performances. We have harnessed the power of arts and ideas to enrich, enlighten and empower individuals, and the power of community to open doors to new opportunities. Through the work of the Center for Arts Learning and Leadership (CALL), 92Y brings the best of what it offers on its stages and classrooms to NYC public schools with the commitment to reintroducing the arts into the core curriculum.
Arts Education Programming:
