Young Artist Summer Intensive
NJPAC faculty provides a positive and nurturing learning environment for students to develop their inner artist. Each division of the Young Artist Summer Intensive builds skills in the performing arts and gives the student opportunities to express themselves and create.
Dancers, poets, actors, musicians or artists can audition for the opportunity to work with NJPAC’s Dance Advisor and Tony Award winner Savion Glover. Solos, groups and bands are welcome.
Hip Hop Intensive
NJPAC Hip-Hop Intensive Performance Showcase
Community students discover how to reimagine their world and boldly express themselves using fundamental Hip Hop cultural practices and art making. Students learn beatmaking (DJ, production, beatboxing), movement (breakin’/classic hip hop dance, today’s trends & choreography), emcee’in (rap & spoken word), and visual arts (graffiti, wearable art & mural design) with ambassadors, entertainers, and preservers of the craft! This fun and meaningful experience is dynamic! So join us for a creative journey that transforms lives!
All-Female Jazz Residency
Led by Artistic Director, Regina Carter, young women find inspiration and build community in this one-week jazz resident program. Students will refine their instrumental or vocal skills and work intensely with respected jazz musicians. The program includes individual lessons, small ensemble work, industry panel discussions, field trips to landmark jazz institutions and culminates in a final student showcase. The program is conducted at Rutgers-Newark campus where the students stay in Rutgers’ dormitories. Past Master Class artists/faculty include Terri Lyne Carrington, Stefon Harris and industry experts such as Karen Kennedy and Sheila Anderson.
