Youth Performance Ensemble

Our YPE group is an opportunity for kids 8–16 to come together to inspire and uplift the human spirit by sharing their talent.  These young performers will sing, act and dance at local children’s hospitals and senior living homes. Visits have included the Care One Senior Home in Ridgewood, and the Highlands Family Success Center in West Milford where they also helped served a Thanksgiving Dinner before their performance, and Oasis in Paterson where they also delivered toys they had been collecting.  

Our next session of YPE will begin January 9, 2018.  

Classes will be held Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm - 8pm - Jan. 9 through March 6th (no class on Feb. 20).
