Our Expanding Horizons College Prep Program Is A HUGE SUCCESS!
The Expanding Horizons College Prep Program was back again this July at the United Palace of Cultural Arts, in Washington Heights. Fifteen new participant and ten alumni took part in rigorous classes in audition techniques, master classes in acting, private voice lessons and interpretive coaching. There was also a writing component that focused on those all important college application essays. Our summer portion concluded in a final performance that was standing room only.
SAT classes started in August and we'll be working with our mentors from Morgan Stanley on the actual college applications, FAFSA and scholarships this fall.
Our Empower Youth Summer Program Was Great!
Empower Youth is a free* music and theater program for kids between grades 3 - 6 and 7 - 11. Now in its 4th year, classes are taught by professional theater artists. This summer our kids created and performed their own original show with songs from Broadway musicals and popular culture. Show topics ranged from bullying, to empowering kids, accepting others, and the importance of education.
Classes are Monday - Friday from 9am - 2pm for grades 3 - 6 and from 9am - 4pm for kids in grades 7 - 11. This project also takes place at The United Palace of Cultural Arts, in New York City's Washington Heights. *There is a $25 application fee to guarantee attendance, which we will wave upon request.
