Dance Theatre Etcetera’s 2016 CASA (Creative After-school Adventures) program took place at the P.S. 15 Good Shepherd Services Beacon Program in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The spring program provided 22 fifth graders with hands-on learning in a variety of theatre and dance genres.
Students were introduced to musical theatre as well as hip-hop and modern dance. They created an original play, called The Black Out, about a day when their school lost electricity and, instead of delivering their PowerPoint presentations, the students made a play about five things that were important to them.
The program culminated with a performance in the P.S. 15 auditorium for more than 100 afterschool participants (ages 6-14), family, and staff members.
Our 2016 CASA program was made possible through the support of New York City Council Member Carlos Menchaca and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
