Cultivating the next generation of global citizens

Our Youth Arts Academy, founded in 1998, has been a haven of beauty, safety and free expression for some 200 youth annually, cultivating global citizens who can become powerful contributors to communities around the corner and around the world. We offer over 40 classes weekly, including ballet, modern, African, tap, hip-hop, drumming, drama, playwriting and digital media taught afterschool and on Saturdays led by dynamic teaching artists from award-winning choreographers to Broadway actors.
