The SUMMER EMPOWERMENT INSTITUTE (SEI) is a 4 week arts intensive that uses the mediums of dance, music, and drama as a means to encourage and empower girls in grades 8 through sophomore year of college.

Through the arts, our SEI students will gain valuable skills that will propel them into success academically, professionally, and socially. Aside from intense arts training, each week SEI students will meet and be mentored by some of the brightest and most successful women working across industries. An Assistant District Attorney, a nationally renowned educator, a Broadway performer and director/choreographer and one other leading professional to be announced.

The SEI will culminate with two performances by SEI students of a new musical/revue to be directed, choreographed, and musically directed by women who are well respected in their fields.

The SEI will start on Monday, July 25th and will run through Wednesday, August 31st. The students will meet Monday through Friday from 10AM to 3PM in our new home at La Luz Performing Arts Space located at 135 Thames Street in Brooklyn.
