Looking for something fun for children and teens to do this summer? The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC will offer Virtual Summer Programs with opportunities for all ages – from 2 months to adult.

“As we keep the arts alive during this time, our virtual summer programs provide an incredible outlet for students to share, grow and learn,” Alexander Diaz, Creative Director at The Performing Arts School, said. “The menu of offerings creates a great experience for the students participating.”  

Students can save 10% on tuition by paying in full on or before June 1 by using the code BPAS10. For more information, visit bergenpac.org/summer.
