ENRICHMENT AT QPAC!
Enrichment at QPAC in an exciting initiative serving the unique needs of the education and theatre communities, by connecting professional artists with aspiring artists in an effort to provide cultural and artistic opportunities to students for which a lack of arts programming is evident.
This season we will be focusing on Dance Enrichment. In these workshops, participants study dance from degreed professionals and Broadway performers. The workshops are shaped to the interests and level of each group. Participants receive individual coaching and feedback from the instructor. Teaching artists hired reflect New York City's multi-ethnic communities.
We are offering three sessions of Dance Enrichment catering to three different age groups. Students under the age of 18, will be required to have their parent or guardian fill out a registration form before being allowed to participate.
Thursdays – DANCE ENRICHMENT!
4pm-5:30pm for ages 8-13
5:30pm-7:00pm for ages 14-18
Warm-ups, dance vocabulary, combinations and fully choreographed dance routines will all be covered in this workshop, to get students dancing in a few short weeks. Students will gain the necessary skills to be able to pick up choreography quickly. Dance styles covered include Broadway, Hip Hop, Modern and Jazz. All levels accepted. An informal classroom demonstration will be held during the last week of class.

"I cannot tell you how pleased I was to see PS/IS 499’s students in their spring performance of the GLEE and DANCE programs at QPAC. I could see how much the students learned, and their excitement, as I watched them perform on stage." –Helene Jacob, Principal
