Creative After School Adventures  (CASA) is a New York City Council Initiative that is administered by NYC Department of Cultural Affairs to support partnerships between cultural organizations and a school partner for afterschool arts programming.
We are grateful to Council Member Carlos Menchaca for designating Hook Arts Media® (formerly Dance Theatre Etcetera) as a recipient of a CASA grant to provide programming at the Good Shepherd Services afterschool Beacon program at PS 15.
In the spring of 2018, teaching artists Rajonna Lewis and drummer Delwynn Gilkes led 14 two hour workshops for 35 spirited fourth and fifth graders at PS 15, introducing students to African Diasporic Dance Traditions and African Drumming. The program culminated with a joyful presentation of their choreography at the opening night of Hook Arts Media’s annual Red Hook Fest.
