Education & Community Engagement 

Society for the Performing Arts offers educational and outreach programs that are as diverse and far-reaching as the artists SPA presents! 

We are proud to offer programming that takes place in conjunction with SPA's main stage performances, delivering a vast array of events to suit any taste. On performance nights, guests can arrive early to enjoy our Performance Preludes, which highlight local performing arts groups of all ages, and SPA ArtsTalks, short discussions that give audience members deeper insight into the evening's performance. We also offer programs open to the public at venues in the Theater District and other locations in the Houston area. Music Master Classes take place at schools and other locations around Houston, while The Tudor Family Dance Master Class Series is generally held at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center.

With an eye on enriching the arts education and theatrical experiences of children in the greater Houston area, SPA offers a multitude of programs for students and teachers. SPA provides opportunities for schools to experience the world’s best performers at affordable prices through the Student Matinee Program and the Student Series. Teachers are also given the opportunity to take advantage of our educator professional development sessions offered throughout the year.
