High 5 Tickets to the Arts, an ArtsConnection teen program, gives young people exclusive access to New York City’s thriving arts scene for just $5. Open to students aged 13-18 or enrolled in grades 6-12, High 5 has $5 tickets to events ranging from dance to music to theater and the visual arts. We’ve got something for everyone. Teens can purchase $5 tickets for an accompanying adult, so the whole family can cash in on the best deal in NYC!

The Teen Reviewers and Critics (TRaC) Program and Freelancer Corps both offer teens the chance to explore NYC’s culturescape, write about their experiences and publish their work right here on the High 5 Review, an online publication fueled by teen arts coverage.
