The Joyce Theater as a classroom, is a unique collaboration among schools, the theater, and dance companies from around the world. The school program is designed to foster an understanding of dance and dance aesthetics among students K-12th grade, to encourage the development of their perceptions and imaginations, and to integrate the arts into classroom learning. Programs address the learning standards for the arts and the blueprints for teaching and learning in the arts.

In addition to the core program, dance artists and companies performing at The Joyce during the fall and spring semesters conduct dance residences at select schools, providing students with valuable opportunities for in-depth explorations of choreography and movement, as well as opportunities for learning and performing dances by master artists. Residency companies have included American Ballroom Theater, American Dance Legacy Institute, Parsons Dance Company and Ballet Hispanico.
