GiGi’s Playhouse NYC Virtual Summer Programs 2020

In 2020, as a result of COVID-19 and new social-distancing guidelines, we are so excited to announce that we have entirely redeveloped our summer programs and curriculums to create an engaging and dynamic virtual experience for all of our participants. Despite remote programming, our schedule remains as active and exciting as past summers. Each day includes activities that encourage movement, creativity, life skills, and more. Participants will partake in yoga, jiu jitsu, fitness, musical theater, dancing, scavenger hunts, museum tours, art projects, singing, acting, and special events.

In fact, our virtual summer has created new possibilities in terms of expanding our programs to families outside of the immediate NYC area. Furthermore, our community partnerships are no longer limited to NYC. For example, we are looking forward to a live tour of murals around the city of Philadelphia, accompanied by worksheets, coloring books, and a conversation with professional artists. We are collaborating with instructors and teachers around the country who will bring their expertise and compassion to our community.

We can’t wait for you get involved!
