El Barrio Raíces Summer Program 2019

El Barrio Raíces Summer Program is a four-week summer program that offered theater training to children between the ages of 7 and 10. The program is free of charge and open to all NYC residents. This year we presented the play The Big Blue Swirl by Edna de Jesús. Participants had the opportunity to learn about all disciplines of theater, including acting, dance, make-up, ensemble work, costumes, and sets. Our bilingual team of teaching artists facilitated all classes. For more information on our 2020 season, please email us at ElBarrioRaicesCamp@gmail.com.

This program was founded thanks to the initiative and support of La Marqueta Retoña and Former Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
