On January 8th we are going to have our 26th annual Performing Arts Workshops for Secondary Students (PAWS) at SUNY Purchase. This year we are hosting about 350 students from 11 High Schools from Westchester and Fairfield County! The students will have a chance to participate in numerous workshop offerings that are normally not taught at their schools. Every student will partake in three workshops based on their preference.
This year for those students interested in DANCE, we offer:
Jazz Dance, Belly Dance, Irish Step Dance, Modern Dance, Hip Hop, Latin Dance & Choreography
Or take one of these workshops to try out your VOCAL chords:
Jazz Singing, Gospel & Choral Singing for Musical Theatre
Or try your chance at THEATRE:
Yoga for the Actor, Directing, Audition Techniques, Advanced Studio Acting & Stage Combat
OR CHOOSE ONE OF ALL THREE FOR A MORE DIVERSE DAY OF WORKSHOPS!
There is something for everyone at PAWS to try out and we are excited to see this year’s event succeed like it has for the past 25 years: “PAWS is a celebration of the arts and helps me improve on things I’m passionate about.” “The whole day was one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had.”
-Exploration leads to passions and we are happy to provide this opportunity to this year’s students once again.
