Performing Arts Center in Mamaroneck Adds New Classes

Performing Arts Center in Mamaroneck Adds New Classes


Last fall, Heather Capelle and her husband, Peter, bought the studio that was previously known as Applause Westchester and re-opened it as Artistree Performing Arts with the mission to, "create a community of performers who can build their confidence and friendships in a really supportive and nurturing environment.” 

After managing the studio as Applause for 8 years, they have recently added new classes to their Artistree curriculum. The first is an advanced acting class for students in grades 9-12. The other is an acting and playwriting class for students in grades 4-8. In this class, students who might be more interested in acting and writing, rather than singing and dancing can write their own scenes and perform them at a year-end showcase.

Artistree also offers a new music video birthday party option, where the birthday boy or girl can pick a pop song and dress up and dance with their friends. Choreography will be taught and the kids will be filmed in order to create a music video of their own.

Artistree Performing Arts offers classes for kids 6 months-18 years. It also offers several adult classes.
