Preparatory Center for the Performing Arts

Since 1978, the Preparatory Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College has provided a nurturing and fun setting where our talented, professional artist-teachers develop children’s skills in music, theater, and dance to their fullest potential.

Skills developed in the arts promote confidence and self-esteem, traits essential for any path taken in life. The Prep Center staff work in collaboration with parents and instructors to ensure the best course of study for students. Children ages three to 18 at all levels of study are welcome. Adults may receive private instruction in music, theater, and dance at beginner to advanced levels, and take group classes in guitar, piano, and voice.

The Prep Center school year runs from September through June for 30 weeks. Additional new classes are offered in the spring semester. Summer session runs for six weeks from July through August.
