The Broward Center for the Performing Arts, which ranks among the top ten most-visited theaters in the world, hosts more than 700 events and 700,000 visitors annually. Overlooking the New River in downtown Fort Lauderdale, the Center brings Broadway musicals, operas, ballets, concerts, plays, multi-cultural performances, films, lectures and numerous community workshops and educational events to South Florida while also creating unique and successful collaborations with partners in the arts, community, government and business. The Center’s mission includes a strong focus on integrating the arts into education. A long-standing partnership with the School Board of Broward County has created an award-winning model for other communities through the Student Enrichment in the Arts (SEAS) program. SEAS activities are designed to advance specific educational goals tied into state standards, helping to develop our future workforce. The education programs at the Broward Center serve thousands of students each year, totaling more than 2.9 million students since its inception.
