If you live in New York or ever just visited, you know that there’s a plethora of things to see and do and no shortage of exposure to the arts. Honestly it’s what makes this city as culturally vibrant as it is.
A couple of weeks ago, while attending a private behind the scenes tour of the Met and Philharmonic, I learned about Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts new announcement of a major expansion of all its family programming starting this month that includes a free event in May.
LC Kids, Lincoln Center’s membership program for families aims to welcome children to a year-round journey through fun-filled performances and activities designed to promote a life-long love of the performing arts.

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, 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, 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.
“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 memberships are offered at a variety of levels, including a free option. You can sign up here: kids.lincolncenter.org
