As our programs wrap up for the school year, here's a look back at all our students have accomplished!
Our 6th-8th grade students at Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation's Community Learning Center completed a full year of musical theatre with Teaching Artist Taylor Valentine. In the spring, TA Victor Remak joined us to work with students on choreography.
In the fall, 8th grade students took part in our semester-long Audition Prep program to prepare them for the performing arts high school audition process. Several students were admitted to audition-based schools across the city.
We partnered with Riverdale Neighborhood House to offer two full-year programs to middle school students at In-Tech Academy. A dance program for students in grades 6-8 was led by TA Antoine Judkins, while TA Natalie Jones guided students through a year of musical theatre.
At Hope for Us, students ages 7-11 participated in a semester of visual arts with TA Catt Melendez in the fall. This spring, the program resumed with TA Kali Dinh.
Our longest-running program partner, Elysian Charter School, once again hosted our semester-long theatre arts program for middle school students with TA Candace Clift.
