Bayview Student Showcase: Talented young performers coming soon to a stage near you!

We’re proud to announce that Performing Arts Workshop will be partnering with the 3rd on Third Bayview arts and culture celebration to bring our talented young artists to the stage!

On the evening of Thursday, March 20th, 2014, students from Dr. Charles R. Drew College Preparatory Academy and Paul Revere K-8 School will perform their spoken word compositions and Afro-Peruvian dances at 3rd on Third, a community arts festival that takes place in San Francisco’s Bayview district on the third Thursday of every month.

Students in the after-school dance residency at Drew rehearse the Afro-Peruvian dances they will perform at the Bayview Student Showcase in March.

The showcase is funded by the San Francisco Arts Commission and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission through a Community Arts in the Bayview grant. Thanks to the support of Tyra Fennell, Program Manager at the SF Arts Commission, and Antoinette Mobley, Founder of 941..SF Art Everywhere and host of 3rd on Third, our students will have the opportunity to perform on the same stage that has previously featured such well-known Bay Area artists as the bilingual hip-hop group Los Rakas.

In the meantime, keep an eye out for Performing Arts Workshop at other Bayview community events!

[UPDATE #2] Student Showcase: The Children’s Creativity Museum

We are teaming up with Children’s Creativity Museum to host our first annual Student Showcase this May.

The Children’s Creativity Museum (CCM) is a dream playground for kids and parents. It’s where technology meets art, imagination, and creative expression. Their theater is the perfect venue for our Student Showcase in May.

The museum itself won’t be open during our Student Showcase but we encourage you to check it out before the event.

I recently visited the museum and found myself envying all the children. See why:

The Children’s Creativity Museum is located on 221 Fourth St (at Howard). (Just look behind the carousel.) For hours and directions, visit the museum’s website at creativity.org.
