Some Spaces Still Available in Usdan Center's Special Three-Week Season, July 28 - August 15 Including New Senior Musical Theater Major, for Grades 7-12

There are still some spaces available in Usdan Center's special three-week season, which runs July 28 to August 15. Introduced last year, the program was so successful that it returns. Usdan, America pre-eminent summer arts day camp, has just begun its 47th season at its 200-acre woodland campus in the Huntington area of Long Island.

Major subjects still available for the three-week programs include Discovery (for Grades K to 1), Art Adventure (Grades 2 to 4), Studio Art (Grades 5 to 12), Chess (Grades 3 to 12), and the new Musical Theater major for Grades 7 to 12 (note: the Theater Dance major, also for grades 7 to 12, is full). Most students also have a Minor subject, and those available include Recreation (Grades 2 to 12), Chess (Grades 3 to 12) and Junior Chorus (Grades 2 to 6). Note: grades indicated are for the 2013-14 school year.

Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts (www.usdan.com), counts among its alumni actors Natalie Portman, Olivia Thirlby and Jackie Hoffman, and singers Jane Monheit and Mariah Carey. It has introduced the arts to more than 60,000 Tri-State Area children since its founding in 1968. The Center is open to all young people from age 6 to 18. No audition is needed for most programs - rather, admission is based on an expression of interest in the arts. Each summer, 1,600 students are transported to the Center in air-conditioned buses each day. One-third of Usdan's students attend on scholarship. Although the mission of the Center is for every child to establish a relationship with the arts, the unique stimulation of the Center has caused many to go on to arts careers. Alumni include members of Broadway shows and major music, theater, and dance ensembles such as the Boston Pops and the New York City Ballet. In addition to its regular programs, Usdan offers special opportunities for advanced high school- age performing artists in music and dance. Usdan Center is an agency of the UJA-Federation of New York. For more information, write to info@usdan.com. Call (631) 643-7900, or visit www.usdan.com .
