Our arts education programs provide students with unique and “hands-on” arts training by industry professionals that allow them to gain real world experience and enhance academic achievement through the arts as well as opportunities to perform on bergenPAC's main stage and throughout the county. bergenPAC’s arts education initiatives occur on-site at our Performing Arts School building at 1 Depot Square, Englewood, NJ or off-site at your school.
