History:

The Center for Creative Education (CCE) was established as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 1989 and launched its first youth arts education program in Kingston, New York in 1997. The following year CCE established the Stone Ridge Center for the Arts (SRCA) as a community center, performance space, and administrative headquarters. In 2005, CCE opened a performing arts training center in midtown Kingston and moved its main office to a newly renovated building at 20 Thomas Street in Kingston in February, 2007. This new complex has a 1300 square foot dance studio, a percussion studio, homework and tutoring center, and a computer music lab that is being developed in collaboration with the Kingston School District’s Department of Fine Arts and Enrichment. This lab will have the equipment to offer courses currently unavailable at the high school and will provide training to both students and District staff.

CCE has worked closely with the Kingston School District for a decade and runs three successful arts education programs in Kingston including the Percussion Orchestra of Kingston (POOK), The Energy Hip Hop Dance Company, and the arts component of the TOPS after school program at George Washington and John F. Kennedy Elementary Schools. In addition, the Center has provided in-school and after-school arts education programming at J. Watson Bailey and M. Clifford Miller Middle Schools; Harry L. Edson, Ernest C. Myer and Robert Graves Elementary Schools and Kingston High School.
