Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College
Announces 2015-16 Family Performances
Including Clifford the Big Red Dog and Step Afrika!
Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College continues to bring quality, affordable, and family-friendly performing arts programming to the culturally diverse communities of Brooklyn throughout its 2015-16 Season.
Brooklyn Center’s 2015-16 family programming brings in performances that span over a wide range of genres and cultures, including an awe-inspiring concert by Black Violin, an annual holiday favorite The Colonial Nutcracker, a stepping rhythmic dance show Step Afrika!, a Lunar New Year Celebration by Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company, the Golden Dragon Acrobats, Clifford the Big Red Dog™ – LIVE! based on the hit PBS Kids series, and Alexander Who’s Not Not Not Not Not Not Going to Move. Clifford the Big Red Dog™ – LIVE! will be the centerpiece of Brooklyn Center’s ninth annual National Grid Earth Day Celebration.
Online resources, such as literacy-based activity sheets and Parents’ Guides, will give parents the opportunity to engage their children prior to attending the performances, and then again after seeing each show.
“Bring the whole family, from toddlers to grandparents, to Brooklyn Center’s upcoming 2015-16 season of world class performances for families,” says Jon Yanofsky, the Director of Brooklyn Center. “Our family programming creates lasting memories for kids and adults alike as it celebrates and explores the rich cultural traditions of Brooklyn and the world.”
