Share your performance on a virtual stage!

The Tilles Center for the Performing Arts LIU Post has an unwavering commitment to the arts in education.  Their hearts go out to student performers and directors who are unable to perform this spring; they understand the hard work, talent and dedication that each person contributes and the disappointment that comes with missing a performance.

Therefore, they would like to welcome student performers to the Tilles Center Virtual Stage!  You have the opportunity to be featured on Tilles Center's social media pages and in emails that go to thousands of art loves and supporters in the tri-state area.  

Student performances can include dance, music and/or musical theater ensembles or solos of 5 minutes or less.  Videos can be uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox or Google Drive and a link should be emailed to Stephanie Turner, Director of Education and Outreach, at no later than April 15, 2020.

Please include the name and grade level of the student performer(s), advising teacher/director and school name.  Entries will be reviewed by a panel of professional performing artists and the top performances will be featured!
