BAX is a community based performing arts center dedicated to developing artists of all ages, from children to professionals. The organization offers community access to arts and culture, supporting the creation of new work by emerging artists, engaging diverse audiences and providing arts education to low-income youth and families. BAX has
intentionally constructed an environment where children study and professional artists create under the same roof. Students are mentored by professional directors and choreographers. The organization’s distinct focus on developmental process makes it a nurturing incubator for experimental dance and theater artists and an important advocate for under-represented voices in the New York City performing arts community.
Public School Programs
BAX’s public school programs serve over 4,000 students, integrating theater and dance into language, social studies, geography and other curriculum while providing professional development to public school teachers.
Public School arts-in-education programs take place at The Academy of Talented Scholars, The Brooklyn School of Inquiry, The Brooklyn New School (BNS), The Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies (BCS), Brooklyn International School, P.S. 24 in Sunset Park, and P.S. 115 in Canarsie.
Brooklyn pre-schools and day care centers
BAX’s movement/theater programs in Brooklyn pre-schools and day care centers are designed to match each site’s unique needs and accommodate any age group, size or curriculum requirements. These community-based partnerships take place at The Rivendell School, Young Minds Day Care Center, and the International School of Brooklyn. These schools have found our programs to be an essential part of their programming and a special highlight for their students.
