Boerne Performing Arts FOR KIDS is a program that serves the entire student population of the hill country region.  These programs, made possible through grants, corporate sponsorships, and individual gifts from generous donors, are offered at no cost to students to enhance the classroom state-required curriculum while offering a vibrant performing arts experience that many students might not otherwise access.  Boerne Performing Arts’ commitment is based on the belief that a broad range of performing arts is critical to education and that we have a responsibility to cultivate the audiences and artists of tomorrow.
