Young Audiences Hosts Artspalooza!

Young Audiences, Woodruff Arts Center (YAWAC) is proud to announce Artspalooza. This Saturday series serves to provide teachers, administrators and parents with the opportunity to observe each of Young Audiences’ artists in action in order to better plan in-school arts experiences for the coming school year.

Experience three fun-filled days of interactive activities and performances from more than 30 leading performers in jazz, Latin music, circus arts, world percussion, mime, opera and comedy, all brought to you by Young Audiences at the Woodruff Arts Center, Georgia’s leading provider of arts-in-education programming.

Connect your kids to the arts with paper making; mask building, mural painting and cartooning. Marvel as acclaimed ensemble Tip Tap Two shuffles and time-steps through the history of tap-dance, then watch actor and clown Vince Tortorici play the part of organ-grinding monkey or Enzo the red-nosed fool. Groove along with Manga African Dance’s drums as they pound out the rhythms of Ghana and Nigeria, or relax as Nella Rigell strums and plucks soothing tunes on her orchestral harp. And just try to keep a straight face when improvisational comedy troupe Laughing Matters takes the Rich Auditorium stage.

Artspalooza will be held from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on three Saturdays: Aug. 15, Aug. 22 and Aug. 29. All performances, workshops and activities will be held at the Woodruff Arts Center, 1280 Peachtree St., Atlanta, GA, 30309. Space is limited. First-come, first-served basis.
