THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT: We Made Our Fundraising Goal = 40 kids gain a theater workshop!


With your help we have exceeded our $1,500 goal for this program raising a total of $1,640.  We will now be able to offer a Theater Workshop this winter/spring to 40 low-income 3rd-4th graders attending Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation/PS 7 After School program in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.   

This program feeds directly into our on-going musical theater program at Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation/I.S. 171 providing continuity of in-depth arts learning that CHANGES CHILDREN’S LIVES such as Kristina below.

Meet Kristina


This is Kristina. Building on her own talent, she now has the beginnings of ‘technique’: a specific way of working on the stage via her ‘instrument’ (body/voice) and the way she builds a character.  Kristina has specifically excelled in voice work (she fills the auditorium with her voice without a microphone) and character development (she bridges the gap between the work done in rehearsal and truly living in the moment of the character on the stage). Kristina graduated IS 171 in June 2011 and is now attending Talent Unlimited High School. 


Kristina Performing

Currently, we have over 50 schools on our waiting list for dance, theater, music & visual arts programs. These programs are always NO COST to students.

To help more children gain the benefits of arts learning in 2012 DONATE NOW.
