Open 350 days a year for classes, rehearsals, performances, and arts education programs, Joe's is a hub of cultural and community activity. The largest independent performing arts center in Prince George’s County, it is a safe, after-school haven for youth, offering arts activities that nurture self-confidence and self-esteem. Performing Arts Summer Camp (7:30 am to 6 pm) for children ages 4-13 focuses on in-depth study of cultures and their art forms. For teens, CreativeWorks teaches the basics of working backstage and offers academic and employment skills training, and a year of follow-up support. Joe’s also matches school teachers with local artists who infuse arts into the curriculum. And year-round, anyone can swing by Joe’s for classes in yoga, hip hop, Pilates, aerial dance, hand dance and belly dance – or a performance in the intimate 150-seat theater. At Joe's, artists and residents build community – for the greater good.
