Lincoln Center LC Kids Program and Spring Fling Event #LCKids
My son and I have visited Lincoln Center many times for different events but oddly not for any performances. While I know Lincoln Center to be THE place to enjoy musical and performing arts, I confess I didn't think those performances were family friendly.
Note: I was invited as media to this event. However, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
But that changed after being invited to tour Lincoln Center, including The Met and the Philharmonic, while learning about their programming for families which includes LC Kids and the free “Spring Fling” celebration.
“We believe that the arts are one of the vital cornerstones for every vibrant, strong, and prosperous community. With new initiatives like LC Kids, along with Family-Linc, Poet-Linc, Lincoln Center Local, Boro-Linc, and this “Spring Fling” event, we are building and supporting programs for individuals and families across New York City, New York State, and the nation, who otherwise would not have the opportunity to benefit from the arts due to socio-economic, geographical, and accessibility barriers,” said Jed Bernstein, President of Lincoln Center.
LC Kids, Lincoln Center’s membership program for families, is a great way to have access to all the wonderful programming Lincoln Center has to offer. LC Kids aims to welcome children to a year-round journey through fun-filled performances and activities designed to promote a love of the performing arts.
The free “Spring Fling” celebration is scheduled for Saturday, May 9 from 11am – 2pm outside on Josie Robertson Plaza, under the tent in Damrosch Park, and inside the David Rubenstein Atrium to kick everything off.
“Spring Fling” will showcase current and new offerings programmed for children throughout the year at Lincoln Center. Activities and entertainment will include a 45-minute sing-a-long with acclaimed children’s performer Dan Zanes at the Revson Fountain, instrument try-outs presented by the New York Philharmonic, a scavenger hunt for children to explore the campus, hands-on art projects presented by the Children’s Museum of Manhattan, clowns from Big Apple Circus, LC Kids giveaways, and performances on Josie Robertson Plaza.
Events in the David Rubenstein Atrium include an interactive Dance-Along Story Time event with Angelina Ballerina™ and author Katharine Holabird presented by WNET New York Public Media, performances by The Little Orchestra Society, films from the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and more.
Kids will also be invited to a dance lesson under the tent in Damrosch Park from 12 pm – 1 pm.
“Spring Fling” will be hosted by LC Kids, Lincoln Center’s membership program that aims to welcome families to Lincoln Center, inviting kids to enjoy a year-round journey through fun-filled performances and activities designed to promote a life-long love of the performing arts.
LC Kids memberships are offered at a variety of levels, including a free option.
