Performing Arts Workshop is a nonprofit organization established in 1965 with a mission to help young people develop critical thinking, creative expression, and essential learning skills through the arts. The Workshop brings arts instruction to more than 4,300 students ages 3-18 each year through residencies in world dance, music, spoken word, poetry, theater arts, visual arts, and media arts.
We believe that access to sustained, sequential instruction in an art form should be part of every young person’s education and development. Because of ongoing disparities in such access, we advance equity by prioritizing partnerships which allow us to work with historically underrepresented groups including Black and Brown communities, low-income communities, immigrant communities, indigenous communities, and LGBTQIA+ communities.
Performing Arts Workshop aspires to be a leading organization in arts education. We cannot achieve this without realizing our core values of both inclusion and excellence. This requires sustained focus on equity in all our efforts to recruit, hire, promote, and retain an exceptionally well-qualified staff.
