College Prep Intensive

We are really excited about running our free* college prep program again this summer. For 3 weeks, 10 college bound seniors will have rigorous classes in audition techniques, master classes in acting, private voice lessons and interpretive coaching. We are also adding in a writing component that will focus on those all important college application essays. There will be a final performance open to the public on July 25, 2014 at the United Palace Theater, 175th and Broadway. You must audition for a place in this program.

*This program continues throughout the school year with mentoring sessions designed to support the participants through the college application process. This includes help with determining the right college to go to, the college applications themselves, the financial aid and FAFSA forms, finding additional scholarship money, as well as preparing them for what to expect once they head off.

This past summer, in partnership with the esteemed United Palace of Cultural Arts, Statement Arts reran, Empower Youth, free of charge, for New York City's under-served youth. The first program was a music and theater based project that included two weeks of acting, dance and vocal lessons, benefiting children in grades 3-6 and 7-10. The second was a college preparatory program for high school seniors who are aspiring to have careers in the arts. We spent three weeks helping them prepare for their college auditions with Master Classes in music and theater. Additionally, we added a writing component that focused on those all important college application essays. We plan to continue our work with the college prep program into the fall. In just three weeks, we were able to serve almost 60 children, ages 8-17, from 4 different New York City boroughs.
