The Big Apple, The City That Never Sleeps, The City So Nice They Named It Twice are some of the popular nicknames for New York City. New York is home to a wide variety of individuals and cultures and is a major hub for the arts. Next year, The Arts Partnership will be taking area youth on a trip to New York City to experience many art styles and cultures. Craig VanRenterghem Education Director for the Arts Partnership says that plans for the Youtheatre trip will have the youth experience a vast array of different art styles.
“Take in some Broadway shows, take in some sights, some museums. Get a master class or two with some professionals in the theater program. It gives students a chance to see what it can be like to have that as a career in their future.” said VanRenterghem.
The New York Trip is a first-year educational opportunity for the Arts Partnership, one that they hope will become a tradition. Students will be able to experience and take part in art shows and exhibits from large to small, as well as tour one of the largest cities in the world.
“Part of our itinerary is a tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as seeing two Broadway shows and a tour of Radio City Music Hall. There’s a lot of arts and a lot of excitement.” said VanRenterghem.
The trip will not be inexpensive. Trip packages range from $865.00 to $1125.00. However, VanRenterghem says that the Arts Partnership will work with interested people and several fundraisers will be held before the trip.
“There are payment plan opportunities with our travel company, Bob Rogers Travel and we will also offer fundraising opportunities for those that would be interested in helping the youth pay for the trip.” said VanRenterghem.
There will be 56 spots available for youth as well as chaperones and the public is encouraged to register soon if you are interested. If you would like more information on the trip, you can contact the Arts Partnership at 419-422-3412, or their website at artspartnership.com.
