BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange Announces Fall Open House and Block Party with Open Streets on 5th Ave in Park Slope 

Join us as we kick off our 2022/23 season with BAX's Open House/Block Party. The day includes free sample youth classes in the studio (ages 1-18) and fun collaborative activities for the whole family outside the BAX Building (on Fifth Avenue between 7-8th Streets)!

Meet some of the talented staff and teaching artists that compose the BAX community and try out classes in childhood creative play, tumbling, dance, and drama. BAX Education programs provide young artists with the opportunity to build performing arts techniques while putting special emphasis on creative choice-making, social justice, and the celebration of individual identity within the context of a whole community. As part of our mission to provide accessible programming, our youth classes are offered at sliding scale tiered tuition, with additional scholarships available. View the complete Open House schedule of free classes. Some highlights include: Boys Movement, Creative Drama, Creative Ballet, and Drag Performance.

Students (9+) experienced and/or curious to work as part of a year-long ensemble, develop, perform and direct in original choreography are also invited to check out BAX's advanced Performance Workshop Open Classes: Dance Performance Workshop and AcroBAX.

Ongoing fun and family-friendly movement & visual art-making activities will also be taking place outside the BAX Building as part of our block party.

We are absolutely thrilled to collaborate with the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District, which runs Open Streets in the neighborhood from April - October. For more info and to support the program, visit them here. We are also excited to work with local organizations such as Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and the American Cancer Society to bring the whole community together.

BAX Open House is a rain or shine event. RSVP for BAX's Open House and Block Party!

For three decades, BAX has honored the power of performing arts to connect and transform individuals and communities. The education programs, artist residencies, affordable rehearsal space, community engagement opportunities, mentorship, and performances, all center artists from historically underrepresented backgrounds and prioritize lived and embodied experiences, and access, regardless of ability to pay.
