Casita Maria Center for Arts and Education

Things to do, Schools and universities The Bronx

If you’ve ever balked at the high cost of childcare or after-school activities, you won’t believe that this structured, all-inclusive program is completely free for Bronx kids. After the school day, local students head to the center after class (there’s complimentary pick-up) to dive in to their first class of choice and eat a quick snack. They have their pick of courses in music, theater, dance, fashion, arts and more, which they focus on for 45 minutes, before moving on to a second discipline. As they return throughout the year, they’ll work on final projects to present during a showcase at the end of each semester. Ages 5–15.
