The Program from Bronx Art Ensemble is one of the best program in NYC. I have had the pleasure to work with the program for over two year. They have great and top artist in the Music and Drama area. Their staff are very professional with P.S. 206 M staff and students. They are great resource to our community Spanish Harlem. Thanks to Mr. Scribner for his great job in this organization
The BAE has a unique program of arts-in-education for students grade K - 12, with teachers who are professional in their fields instructing in music, art, drama, dance, hip-hop, capoeira and more. Programs enhance academic classroom work and develop a cultural awareness of the arts and their importance in one's heritage. This has been a highly successful program for many years, evidenced by exciting final performances and exhibits created by students, and great appreciation by school administrators and parents.
We have used the Bronx arts Ensemble in our schools for my entire career there, fourteen years. They have proved invaluable in providing instruction, guidance,and performances in the arts each and every year. I was able to increase my student population in instrumental music from 12 to about 100 with creative scheduling and their assistance. When I am in a classroom teaching general music, one or more of their instructors are keeping the band, violins or chorus moving along.They are the most cost effective way to keep a music program in your school. Even with the severe budget cuts this year, we were able to secure two instructors at three hours each per week for a year for about $10,000. A bargain.
The Bronx Arts Ensemble is an exceptional organization, and we've had the pleasure of working with them for many years. They have been instrumental in the development of our school's arts program, which began with just a a few courses and has since grown into a diverse selection of core and elective arts classes. Under the guidance of the Bronx Arts Ensemble's talented and dedicated instructors, our students have had the opportunity to showcase their talents in school-wide performances, and other venues as well. The Bronx Arts Ensemble has always been supportive in accommodating our school and serving our students' diverse needs, and we're highly satisfied with the quality of their services. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with them this year, and in the future.
I have had the distinct pleasure of collaborating with the Bronx Arts Ensemble for over 20 years. They have provided me with top-notch artists in art, music, dance, chorus and drama in various schools throughout the Bronx. If I needed a specialized performance, I could always count on them to deliver a presentation to students that was engaging, instructional, and above all, fun. Their artist residencies programs in schools are always very professional and instructional. Kids always look forward to their art instructors when they are in the building. I strongly recommend the Bronx Arts Ensemble and the tremendous artists that provide high quality services to children in our schools. Kudos to Bill Scribner and the Bronx Arts Ensemble for their many years of educational services in the arts to the children in the Bronx!
My office has relied on Bronx Arts Ensemble's Arts-in-Education programs to provide cultural education services at schools in my district through the CASA initiative for several years and I have always been impressed with the quality of their programs and the professionalism of their staff. They are an invaluable resource for our community and do great work to enrich the lives of our students. –Councilman James Vacca
Bill Scribner and his team are incredibly dynamic, professional, responsive, and talented! It has been a joy to partner with such a great non-profit. The Bronx is flourishing with people like Bill and his amazing resident artists!
The Bronx Arts Ensemble has been an amazing experience for our students. They provide ballroom and modern dance, art and violin classes to our students. Their faculty are exceptional individuals who love workign with students and my kids look forward to being in their classes. I have worked with them for a total of 5 years and have always been pleased with their services.
Bronx Arts has been involved with International Community High School for many years. For this current year, we are working together to provide 5 different types of courses for our students to take, ranging from Hip Hop to Capoiera. Each year, our students perform at an end of semester celebration, which allows them to showcase what they have learned in the course. The teachers are creative and love their craft, and work to develop the skills of all of our students.
The Bronx Arts Ensemble is an excellent organization.They were extremely helpful to our school in developing our arts program.The instructors were extremely professional and use diverse strategies to engage our children in the arts. The administrative staff was very supportive of our efforts and wwere se valuable in helping us design a program around the needs of our community.
I have attended Bronx Arts Ensemble concerts for a few years. They are committed to bringing fine arts and music programs to Bronx residents. Each year we look forward to the free concerts held throughout the Bronx, which provide an opportunity for families and friends to come together and enjoy a variety of music. During this time, when schools and other educational institutions are losing fine arts programs due to budget cuts, it emphasizes how vital the Bronx Arts Ensemble is to New York City.
Bronx Arts Ensemble partnered with Hunts Point Middle School # 424 during the school year of 2010. We had a theatre component of West Side Story and Shakesphere. This was the most phenominal program I have seen the Visiting Artist was super Leslie Nevon. The program brought education and the most valuable theatre arts program we have ever participated in. I can only hope we will continue this partnership for many years to come. I recommend this program highly to all public schools. Bronx Arts Ensemble offers all aspects of arts we here at HPMS chose theatre because our students are not exposed to this art form on a regular basis. Bronx Arts Ensemble is a exemplar organization in comprehensive arts education. Thank You, Arts Coordinator HPMS #424 Camille Rodriguez
The Bronx Arts Ensemble brings the joy of creative expression to schoolchildren through its Arts-in-Education program. To appreciate BAE’s success, one has only to attend the Festival of the Arts (last held on June 9, 2010 at Lehman College). The children’s faces shined as they danced, sang or played instruments before a proud, enthusiastic audience of parents, siblings and teachers. Such moving performances are very special to witness and surely impact the lives and self-esteem of the young entertainers.
