Overview

The Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), located in the historic resort town of Saratoga Springs in upstate New York, is one of America's most prestigious summer festivals.

Its tranquil setting in a 2,400-acre park preserve surrounded by hiking trails, geysers, and natural mineral springs draws vacation crowds and arts connoisseurs each year for immersive experiences of performances by resident companies New York City Ballet, The Philadelphia Orchestra, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Freihofer’s Saratoga Jazz Festival, Opera Saratoga, and concerts by Live Nation. SPAC also hosts the annual Saratoga Wine and Food Festival in addition to imaginative programming such as the popular “SPAC on Stage” series and Caffè Lena @ SPAC.  

SPAC’s education programs inspire more than 49,000 students every year to appreciate, create, and celebrate the performing arts. The SPAC School of the Arts (SOTA) is a multidisciplinary arts school that was founded in 2021 to further SPAC’s longstanding mission to ensure that students of all ages have the opportunity to experience the transformative power of the arts. SOTA operates out of the Lewis A. Swyer Studios – a state-of-the-art facility located behind the National Museum of Dance in Saratoga Springs, NY.
