All sorts of people take classes at the Abrons Arts Center. This month we’ve gotten to know some of them — including a Lower East Side mom and her 8-year old daughter. Today, in our final profile, we meet Timothy (left) and Adam, who have both been part of the Abrons family for more than a decade.
Timothy, 20, lives in Brooklyn but he attended P.S. 42 on Hester Street. He’s been involved in theatrical productions, ballet and music. He performed in Nutcracker in the Lower and has been part of Abrons’ immersive Steampunk Haunted House. Adam, 17, is a Lower East Side resident and a senior at LaGuardia High School. His first experience at Abrons was in a piano class and from there he moved on to violin instruction, ballet and dance ensemble. Adam’s also had the chance to choreograph his own performances.
Tim and Adam both say they love the personal attention they get from instructors at Abrons. It’s the kind of direct interaction that’s impossible, even at an arts-oriented school like Laguardia. They have big dreams — attending a conservatory, perhaps performing on Broadway. Abrons staff have helped them both pursue their passions.
The Abrons Arts Center training program offers classes for all ages and skill levels in dance, music, theater, and the visual arts. Registration for the fall semester open until the end of the month. You can look over the many course offerings on the Abrons Arts Center’s web site. Register online or call 212-598-0400, ext. 200.
