Fall On The Block is an after school program that focuses not only on performance arts, but incorporates elements of social justice. This fall, we will be using Toni Morrison’s “Song of Solomon” to create an original play, inspired by the famous novel. Using the elements of theater, hip-hop, and historical moments, the students will ignite social change through their performance.
The LAB is a young adult program that explores ways to encourage social change through the use of performance arts especially film and media. This fall, The LAB will be embarking on a journey to write and eventually shoot short film(s) about contemporary social issues through unique and original stories. Participants in The LAB will be corroborating their ideas and art together to create one cohesive story. All forms of art are encouraged and accepted.
Building Blocks is a Saturday morning program that encourages kids (Grades K-5) to dive into artistic activities, create their own craft and meet other individuals with the same interests! Building Blocks is a judge-free environment that provides opportunities for students to learn the fundamental steps of social awareness. There will be dance classes, African drumming sessions, performing arts and acting lessons, visual art activities and more, all the while our students are learning concepts of respect, responsibility, accountability and teamwork.
