Young Black Artists Making History!

Hello Opening Act Community!

In honor of Black History Month, we will spend February highlighting Young Black Artists Making History (including Opening Act’s incredible students and alums!), and the Black History Trailblazers who paved the way. #RESPECT

Follow @openingactny on Social Media to see more Young Black Artists Making History, and let us know which Black History Trailblazers have had an influence on YOU!


Respect is one of Opening Act’s six core valuesIn our classrooms and on our stages, we create an environment of respect so that all of our ensemble members feel brave and safe as they take center stage.
