2022-2023 AAC Youth Program
“This Is How We Do It” Performing Arts Academies
This year we provided the youth with the the Arts as our activity. We named it the “This Is How We Do It” Performing Arts Academy. There are 3 opportunities to learn and experience the Arts.
For over 30 years the African American Club of Pasco, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit
organization, has provided a safe space for young people to grow and develop while having fun and fostering skills necessary to live productive, successful lives.
The 2022-23 program will focus on the performing arts and provide middle and high schoolers an opportunity to explore new avenues, as well as, hone hidden and known talents. This year’s program will offer:
Band/Musical Ensemble Academy
Youth will learn how to play musical instruments and will be afforded opportunities to perform
and showcase their talents. The instructor has been featured on America’s Got Talent and has taught Band for
over 15 years. All youth are welcome…from beginners to the most advanced.
In this academy, youth will learn the mechanics of performing dance routines (i.e. placement, dance count,
stage presence, etc.) The instructor owns a dance studio in Tampa and is experienced in teaching beginners to
the most advanced.
Thespian (Intro to Acting) Academy
Taught by a public school theater teacher, this academy will expose youth to the art of acting. They will learn
how to remember and deliver lines, how to stay in character, etc. Also, this academy will provide
opportunities for youth who are interested in backstage activities (i.e. costuming, creating props, staging, etc.)
