El Barrio Raíces, Boundless Theatre’s popular children’s summer program, will return this year over Zoom! Children aged 9 to 12 will have the opportunity to learn about acting, dance, singing, costume design and set design, all while interacting virtually with friends old and new. All classes will be facilitated by our bilingual team of teaching artists with experience in the NYC theatre scene, as well as invited artists from abroad.
As usual, El Barrio Raíces will be offered free-of-charge, and any child from the five boroughs of NYC is welcome to attend. Each participant will receive a box by mail containing all materials needed for the program. Children will need a device with internet connection in order to participate. The program will take place Monday through Friday, 10AM - 12PM from July 6th to July 24th. Participants in El Barrio Raíces will also have the opportunity to perform in a final showcase on July 31st at 6PM. This showcase will be presented virtually on Zoom for friends and family to enjoy.
El Barrio Raíces is offered in collaboration with The Hispanic Federation and Producciones el Barrío. Capacity is limited! Registration ends on June 25th. For more information, or to register your child for the program, please email us at email@example.com.
