Through grant and private funding support, University of Florida Performing Arts provides free School-Day Performance opportunities to K-12 students at the Phillips Center. UFPA covers the artist fees, facility fees and school bus costs associated with these opportunities, resulting in NO CHARGE to the student or school.

In these hour-long performances, many students experience the live performing arts in a professional hall for the first time. Artists presented in these performances vary in style, cultural background and art form to supplement the arts education in the public school system.
