About Us

 

ADDIE-TUDE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
Addie-tude Performing Arts Center is committed to expanding the Westchester community in cultural dancing and performing arts. The
vision for our program is to first of all spread our love of dance by teaching students a foundation of the dance-genre they are learning. Students will obtain strong technique and confidence to express their passion in a social setting and/or on a performance stage.
We aspire to make opportunities for Kids and Adults giving them a place to share/showcase their ideas, talents and gain the
exposure to network at various events, and perhaps provide a starting chance for an emerging artist.

Our studio-family encourages our students to understand and appreciate the importance of education,
positive family interaction and cultural awareness through the arts.
