Through our programs, students learn to have a greater appreciation of traditional arts, especially folk music and dances, and how these folkloric elements have transmigrated into our culture. Students also witness a creative process while learning its historical importance in our community.

WHAT WE DO:
We provide interactive & fun cultural and wellness programs in diverse communities across New York State and beyond. Our initiative includes a performing ensemble that trains young artists in dance, music, and theater, an art-based Summer Camp, and year-round multicultural and multi-disciplinary wellness activities and creative content programs tailored to various age groups.
Our goal is to provide sustainable, robust cultural experiences that activate the body and mind.
WHO WE SERVE
Our constituency is a multilingual and interdisciplinary community that includes a diverse audience from urban to rural communities. As we have created a network of local artists and community organizations we partner with, we can bring a wide variety of cultural and wellness programming that recognizes and celebrates the diversity of communities in New York and abroad.
Each year, Collectives 4 Arts Music & Dance impacts thousands of people – mostly youth in underserved and marginalized communities – in the United States through cultural workshops, dance classes, and performances.
Collectives for Arts Music & Dance is committed to carrying its founder’s vision of inclusion in our members’ development and education while providing a safe environment where young people can reach their artistic potential. We hope to increase our programming offering and increase our members’ diversity to reflect the demographics it serves more closely.
