Asase Yaa School of the Arts 10th Annual Concert Dreams Do Come True
June 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Asase Yaa School of the Arts presents Dreams Do Come True, their 10th Annual Concert to celebrate the end of their academic year on Sunday, June 19, 2022, 4pm at the Jamaica Performing Arts Center, 153-10 Jamaica Avenue, Jamaica, NY 11432. Dreams Do Come True will be the first live concert for Asase Yaa School of the Arts since the pandemic started. It was inspired by the Asase Yaa Cultural Arts Foundation’s 20th Anniversary theme It Was All A Dream. This performance will showcase 75 students and the year-long curriculum/training they learned in African, Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz, Modern, & Tap dance in four different levels from 3 – 18 years old. It will also feature beginner djembe drum class students from the ages of 3 to 6 years old. Each performance piece ties into their show’s title.
“This past post-pandemic year watching our youth return to the dance floor and the drum circle with excitement has been a breath of fresh air,” noted Zakiya Harris, Artistic Director of the School of the Arts. “This is our first live recital in two years and the show’s title, “Dreams Do Come True” was inspired to celebrate the dedication, artistry, and resilience of our youth and their families who had to overcome major adversity and surreal times to come back to their Asase Yaa family.” For information about tickets contact [email protected].
