Harlem School of the Arts is a cultural arts center of interdisciplinary excellence. For over 50 years, HSA has built a community centered around a dynamic global curriculum, with a focus on diasporas of prominence in Harlem and Upper Manhattan.
Students study and are exposed to music, dance, theatre, visual arts, design, and culture guided by world-class faculty and Master teachers. We cultivate a strong sense of community and creative expression inspired by the rich history of Harlem.
Harlem School of the Arts is committed to leveling the playing field by empowering young people from across the multi-cultural and socio-economic spectrum. Of the nearly 5,000 students who participate in our programs, more than 85% are African American or Latino and nearly 50% of students taking classes at our facility receive financial assistance.
