"I've been in ATG's theater program for three years now and I'm really thankful for it because it has taught me a lot. I've learned how to really express myself and project, and [the program] has really helped me build my character as myself. It has also really helped me socially."

 ~ Kristina - Grade 8, I.S. 171, 2011

Arts to Grow has an exciting line up of Fall programs this year! We kick off with programs at Riverdale Neighborhood House, Bronx, and Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation at IS 302 and IS 171 in Brooklyn. Visit us in social media for announcements of more to come.

Riverdale Neighborhood House (RNH):
Students in the teen program at RNH will engage in a hybrid of dance styles, including urban hip hop, jazz, and Zumba. Students will learn combinations as well as coming up with their own steps in a fun and upbeat class lead by Teaching Artist, Logan McClain. Logan McClain, holds a BA in Dance and Physical Education from Queens College and has over ten years experience working with inner-city youth using dance and physical education as a means of energizing students and establishing a creative learning environment. This is ATG's sixth year partnering with RNH.
