New American stories

This weekly program is being offered to the refugee/ immigrant children/youth from k - 12 grades.
The 20-week classes run follows the school year. 

In this program, the participants create their own original play using dance, theatre, storytelling, music, etc.

We teach the basics of storytelling structure and encourage them to use their imaginations to tell the stories that are most meaningful to them, their ideas resulting in a 20 -minute short play.

The new groups will begin in Oct and will be offered as an afterschool and weekend program.

I Arise​​

Short for I Am. Resilient. Informed. Steadfast. Empathetic.

This weekly program gives voice to the refugee and immigrant women and connects them with American women. 

Together they create a short play that while entertaining also touches upon relevant issues that are contemporary and important to address.  

An offshoot of project 'Lullabies', this program strives towards an increased connection among women of ethnic diversity, resulting in new learnings, and positive shared experiences.​

Sew and Sing

In collaboration with the Mercy Housing, we are thrilled to offer our pilot project, 'Sew and Sing', an evolved form of our previous program 'Lullabies'.

This is a program for stay-home refugee/immigrant mothers, where they learn to sew and create a beautiful vest and learn to sing as in a choir.

Our current group is full .
New group starts - in March 2022

Chance on dance

Dance is awesome, to those who chance it.

We all, no matter what our age is, need to strive to stay healthy and connected with others as we isolate ourselves. Chance on Dance has given us the chance to dance with others in our city, other states, and throughout the world! - Jane Tarkington

Every Sat from 10 - 11 am at the Vintage Theatre.

Love is both dark and Light. Without understanding and accepting one, the other remains elusive.

Empathy begins with the acceptance that we are all different and within us reside the Yin and Yang, the two contrasting forces of nature. 
Our journey of life is a continuous effort to maintain a balance. In doing so, we shall understand the true
meaning of Love.

The Empathy project

Our hearts beat a rhythm, we blink rhythms, we speak rhythms.

We are rhythm!

The language of rhythm is universal and because dance is rhythm, it has the power to connect us to one another

It fosters confidence.
It encourages dialogue.
Dance provides fertile soil for seeds of Empathy.

Geared towards K-12 students, The Empathy Project is an ongoing performance in 2022 for public schools and organizations.

Aly and the Genie

Based on the popular Aladin story from Arabia, this play is anything but. First off, it takes place in a present-day metropolis and well things are not as they seem... (Are they ever?)

Aly is a minding-my-own business girl who is tricked into retrieving a lamp that comes with an ancient and very talkative Genie. 

Filled with adventure, laughter, and crazy but cool characters, this story will lift you up and perhaps inspire you to look for a Genie of your own. 

To be presented at the Vintage Theatre from 1-17 July 2022.


New Americans Art Festival
