StART Young is a free summer performing arts program in Washington Heights. It consists of two two-week sessions, one for 25 students in grades 3 - 6 and one for 25 students in grades 7 - 11. Students learn how to sing, dance, and act under the guidance of trained teaching artists, and are given the opportunity to develop their own scripts around issues that matter to them. Past script topics include family incarceration, coming out, and immigration. Each session culminates in a final performance, designed entirely by the students, that is free and open to the public. When they graduate from StART Young, many students go on to participate in StART Dreaming.

SESSION ONE: Grades 3-6, July 8 - July 19, 2019, final performance on July 19
SESSION TWO: Grades 7-11, July 22 - August 2, 2019, final performance on August 2

For both sessions, classes meet daily, Monday – Friday, 9am-2pm.
