Folk & Traditional Arts

Kids in dance class.

Our new Folk and Traditional Arts program embraces creative and cultural expressions. Our work aims to connect with our community by honoring their culture as seen in the arts.  As stated by NYS Cultural Affairs (NYSCA), the Folk and Traditional Arts are “practiced within and among ethnic, regional, occupational, and religious groups as well as other kinds of communities with a common identity.”  The artistic forms can include: “performing traditions in music, dance, and drama; traditional storytelling and other verbal arts; festivals; traditional crafts, visual arts, architecture, the adornment and transformation of the built environment, and other kinds of material folk culture.”  This year, we are launching two programs:  Rhythm and Teranga, African dance with story-telling and live drumming and Tai Chi Dance Flow, drawing from the Chinese culture. 

Thank you to our generous sponsors and supporters:
