Arlekino Theater Troupe cultivates interest for cultural arts in Russian-speaking Jewish children, while instilling an appreciation for their Jewish heritage. This project has been flourishing as part of the Generation R programming at the JCC Manhattan since 2011, nurturing children’s self-expression, inquiry, and exploration, and promotes Russian language development. The program includes dramatic play, music, dance, storytelling, and art workshops, inspiring young children through interactive interpretations of Jewish folktales. The program culminates in an original, multidisciplinary performance piece by the programs participants.

Taught in Russian by experienced early childhood educators and performing and fine-arts specialists.
