Young Artists

Live Arts Thinkers & Movers

Located in the heart of Chelsea, New York Live Arts is an internationally recognized destination for innovative movement-based artistry, a place where thinking and movement meet the future. In alignment with that philosophy, New York Live Arts is happy to provide educational programs for young people!

Imagination is everything at our multidisciplinary performing arts program! Taking the stage in Live Art’s state-of-the-art theater or 3rd floor studios, established artist instructors work closely with your young artist to engage in the world of ideas. Over the course of each session, we will collaborate and build community. Your Thinkers and Movers will run, jump and spin, compose, glitter costumes and craft their own stories.

 

Partnerships
The first year of a four year partnership that brings the repertory and pedagogical and performative philosophy of the Company to LMU's campus and the Los Angeles area. Students will perform Continuous Replay, Love Redefined, and D-Man in the Waters (Part 1), study with current company members and company alum/LMU faculty member Rosalynde LeBlanc, and receive exclusive access to lectures and master classes by Bill T. Jones and the Company.
Community Dialogues

An intimate conversational platform founded on the belief that cultural institutions can and should be a catalyst for societal transformation by participating in a world of ideas. Open Spectrum provides a space for community dialogue on the most vital issues facing our community today, engaging participants in active listening, constructive discourse and action planning.
