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.

 

MAKE

Fueled by imagination, young artists command the space in Live Arts state-of-the art studio- a screen free zone! In MAKE, a weekly, two hour workshop, an established artist instructor will work closely with young artists to engage in the world of ideas.Through our work together, we will collaborate and build community, as we work toward a lifelong appreciation of movement-based arts and live gathering!

Students will gain confidence as thinkers and movers, increasing their strength and range of motion while deepening their artistry through a study of improvisational and choreographic techniques.

Classes 1 & 2:
Thinkers and Movers will run, jump, spin and compose, concluding each session with a brand new piece of live art! At the end of class two, we will put on our dance critic hats, comparing & contrasting the impact of our new dance works.
