The Black Box Performing Arts Center's founders developed proprietary, innovative, and uniquely collaborative workshops in theater (drama and musicals), acting, improv, music, and writing. For adults, teens, and children from all backgrounds, these programs are offered throughout the year and most are performance-based, with the resulting productions playing on our main stage. Now, the Black Box student community shares space with the Black Box Repertory Company, a cutting-edge group of theater professionals who run BBPAC and are about produce their fourth full season of professional theater, including new, recent, and more established works for the stage. Their work can be also be seen in NYC at select times throughout the year.

Originally started in the ballroom of a historic community center on Teaneck's Cedar Lane in 2007, Black Box has emerged as one of the premiere performing arts schools in the Tri-State area, offering a unique form of theater training that utilizes a proprietary improv-based collaborative teaching methodology which allows for maximum success in confidence building, group dynamics, creative output and flow, and true freedom of expression.
