The Teen Reviewers and Critics Program (TRaC) is a free 10-week afterschool program for high school students from all over New York and New Jersey to explore the arts in NYC while expanding critical thinking and writing skills. Participating teens are placed in one of six groups—film, dance, theater, visual art, music, or multi-arts—to dig deep into a specific artistic genre by attending cutting-edge performances, meeting artists, visiting museums, learning to navigate the city, and much more.
