Since 1988, Pentacle has developed an educational mission that cultivates a broader understanding of dance and non-profit career possibilities for youth. Behind the Scenes is a program that offers artistic mentorship at the pre-professional level. The objective is to provide youth a unique chance to identify new areas of interest and learn the skills they need to stay connected to the arts throughout their lives.










Behind the Scenes is generously supported through funding by the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.


Pentacle’s educational programming meets the benchmarks of the New York State Learning Standards for the Arts and the New York City Department of Educational Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts.
