Usdan 12/13 Visit/Info Event; Full Jazz Program, $100 Tuition Discount
(Published: December 02, 2015)

(PHOTO: JANE MONHEIT PERFORMS AT USDAN GALA). Usdan (www.usdan.com), the nationally acclaimed summer arts day camp that for almost 50 years has introduced the arts to more than 40,000 children, announces the beginning of enrollment for the 2016 season, which begins Monday June 27, 2016.

Usdan's Jazz Department, founded in 1986 by Dr. Billy Taylor, has vocal, instrumental and ensemble classes at beginner to advanced levels, and its Jazz Ensemble regularly performs in the camp's on-site McKinley Ampitheater. Jazz stars who have performed and taught at Usdan include Jimmy Heath, Dr. Taylor, Arturo O'Farrill, Bobby Watson, Jon Faddis and Usdan alumna Jane Monheit.

Usdan also announces that this year, for the first time, parents have the option to enroll their children online, at www.usdan.com/enroll. Those whose prefer print enrollment can print the application off the web or have a form mailed to them. In addition, there will be, Priority Renewal, a $100 tuition reduction for all programs - 3, 4 and 7 weeks - for enrollment through the priority deadline of January 31, 2016.

The net Visit and Information Event for the new season will be on Sunday December 13, at Usdan's magnificent 200-acre woodland campus, 185 Colonial Springs Road, Wheatley Heights, NY 11798. For an appointment, call 631-643-7900 (Visitors must be 21 years of age or accompanied by a parent).

In addition to Usdan's frequent Information Events, Usdan offers weekend and weekday Campus Visits available by appointment. For directions to Usdan, visit www.usdan.com.

Usdan offers more than 60 programs in music, dance, theater, visual arts, creative writing, nature and ecology and chess, annually hosting more than 1,400 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 merit or family need. Video from many of Usdan's programs and special events, may now be viewed on Usdan's website, 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.

Usdan includes among its alumni actors Natalie Portman and Olivia Thirlby and singers Jane Monheit and Mariah Carey. Usdan is open to all young people from age 4 to 18. Although the mission of Usdan is for every child to establish a relationship with the arts, the unique stimulation of Usdan has caused many to go on to arts careers. Alumni include members of Broadway shows and major music, theater, and dance ensembles such as the Boston Pops and the New York City Ballet. In addition to its regular programs, Usdan offers special opportunities for advanced high school-age performing and visual artists. These include Music Staff Internships and a Musical Rep Theatre Ensemble. Usdan is an agency of the UJA-Federation of New York.
