Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts (www.usdan.com), the nationally acclaimed summer arts day camp whose Jazz Department was founded in 1986 by Dr. Billy Taylor, and whose alumni jazz singer Jane Monheit announces its next Open House on Wednesday February 18 from 11 AM to 2 PM.

Usdan offers jazz instrumental and vocal classes for all levels, plus special on-site performances by renowned artists: Jimmy Heath, Arturo O'Farrill, Jane Monheit, Bobby Watson, Jon Faddis, and many others.

In addition, Usdan will now offer classes in Hip Hop and combined jazz dance styles.

Open Houses are at the Center's 200-acre woodland campus, at 185 Colonial Springs Road, Wheatley Heights (Huntington), New York 11798. For information and reservations, call (631) 643-7900, write to info@usdan.com, or visit www.usdan.com.


A second session of Usdan's special and successful 3-week season will launch in 2015. The new session will begin as Usdan's season opens on June 29, while the second 3-week session will begin on July 27. These options are in addition to Usdan's traditional 7-week and 4-week sessions.

In addition to the Center's frequent Open House dates, Usdan offers individual weekend guided tours available by appointment. Weekday self-guided walks are also available. For directions to the Center, visit www.usdan.com. For an appointment, call 631-643-7900 (Visitors must be 21 years of age or accompanied by a parent). Families who cannot attend an Open House may make individual appointments for visits on weekends or weekdays throughout the Fall and Winter.

Usdan Center annually hosts more than 1,600 students from towns throughout the Tri-State New York area. No audition is needed for most courses, and transportation is provided in air- conditioned buses that depart from most New York-area neighborhoods. One- third of Usdan's students receive scholarship assistance based on family need. Video from many of Usdan's programs and special events, may now be viewed on the Center's website, http://www.usdan.com as well as on YouTube. Also, families can check out Usdan's Facebook site, where additional information and late-breaking news is featured.

Future Open Houses during 2014-15 will be on Sundays, March 15, April 19, and May 17, all from 11 AM to 2 PM.

Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts is open to all young people from age 6 to 18. Although the mission of the Center is for every child to establish a relationship with the arts, the unique stimulation of the Center has caused many to go on to arts careers.

Usdan Center also recently co-presented the sold-out "Jimmy Webb and Jane Monheit" concert at Port Washington's Landmark on Main Street. ###
