ASK, or After School at the Klein, is the only tuition-free, in-theater after school arts program available in Bridgeport, a city where many families live at or below the poverty level. Over 120 students in grades 7 through 12 receive instruction in music, dance, and drama. ASK students come from 11 Bridgeport schools and represent every city council district.
Arts education has a well-documented and widely recognized positive impact on children’s ability to learn in school and succeed outside of school, as it builds perseverance, focus, problem-solving and communication skills.
