New Professional Theatre

The Westchester Project

The Westchester Project Begins October 3, 2017 

This project will give underprivileged Public School children in Upper Westchester County an opportunity to attend private dance classes. All classes will be offered after-school free of charge!  Dance classes have physical and mental benefits, they improve your heart and lungs, provides increased muscular strength as well as motor fitness and endurance. Dance classes also improve socialization, concentration, collaboration and emotional well being. The benefits are also underscored by giving children confidence, self-esteem and an appreciation for dance that may not be realized without this project.

Classes will be taught by Master Teacher Mamie Duncan Gibbs. Mamie is a veteran of 8 BROADWAY SHOWS!  Maybe you have seen her on Broadway in CHICAGO or CATS!  

 All classes will include stretching and fitness!
