El Barrio Raíces Summer Program 2020

El Barrio Raíces Summer Program is a four-week summer program that offers 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 Sunshine News by Edna de Jesús virtually. Participants had the opportunity to learn about all disciplines of theater, including acting, dance, make-up, ensemble work, costumes, and sets with our virtual classes. Our bilingual team of teaching artists facilitated all classes. For more information on our 2020 season, please email us at ElBarrioRaicesCamp@gmail.com.
