Annual series of matinee demonstration performances allow students to discover diverse art forms in music, dance and theater with professional artists from across Los Angeles and around the world.

Services Provided

Free performances, workshops, educational materials and activity guides.

Who We Serve

DFS programs are available to any K-12 public school in the greater Los Angeles area. Our workshop activities provide an opportunity for students to interact with artists in an interactive or behind-the-scenes setting.

Mission and Goals

As the K-12 Arts Education program of UCLA's Center for the Art of Performance, DFS connects students to dynamic performers and arts educators. We believe the arts unlock our empathy and creativity, allowing us to learn from each other in meaningful ways, and that a visit to a professional venue on a University campus can spark inspiration.
