The Urban Arts Center is made up of programs designed to inspire and motivate young people in the Lehigh Valley through the arts.
Xcape Dance Studio offers low-cost, comprehensive dance education to Allentown youth ages 6 to 22. Featured on the Queen Latifah Show in October 2013, the studio provides a fun and nurturing environment where students of all personalities and backgrounds can explore their creativity while learning valuable life skills such as teamwork, self discipline and work ethic. Class offerings include ballet, jazz, hip-hop and contemporary/modern dance.
The Designated Hitters is the official drumline of the Lehigh Valley's IronPigs Minor League Baseball Team. The 15-member drumline is a featured act at 15 home games throughout the season, welcoming crowds in the parking lot at Coca-Cola Park before games, participating in player introductions and performing between innings alongside the IronPigs' popular mascots. Members range in age from 16 to 25 and are local to the Lehigh Valley area.
