DESCRIPTION

Three internships are available.

Lincoln Center Education (LCE) is the educational arm of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc.  For almost 40 years, Lincoln Center Education has been a leader in integrating the arts into school curricula and training teachers to use the arts as a teaching tool.

LCE’s mission is to enrich the lives of students, educators, and lifelong learners by providing opportunities for engagement with the arts onstage, in the classroom, digitally and in the community.  LCE seeks to achieve its mission using a teaching model through which the study of works of art fosters critical thinking skills that can be applied in school and the workplace; a repertory of works of art in music, theater, dance and the visual arts; and opportunities for engagement on the Lincoln Center campus and via digital technology.
