El Puente Beacon Saturday Arts Program is Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s premiere free Arts program for youth. Youth engage in Ballet, Visual Arts, Acting, Street Jazz, and B-boy/girl classes through two semesters of intense training. The Fall Semester is designed to develop foundational skills, terminology, and technique as well as provide members with an understanding of El Puente’s mission, principles and how it relates to social justice initiatives. The Spring Semester uses thematic work along with skill building to prepare a direct community message through the arts in a year ending performance. The program also prepares 7th and 8th grade students for Art based High School auditions, presents a Winter Recital, and participates in El Puente’s universal Annual Three Kings Day performance. With a pre-professional standard upheld in the program, parents, facilitators and students alike all strive for excellence.
