Korean Performing Arts Center (KPAC)

Korean Traditional Performing Arts Association (KTPAA) was founded in 1986 as the Korean Traditional Arts Community. With growing community support, the association adopted its name, Korean Traditional Performing Arts Association (KTPAA), and the organization was formally recognized by the State of New York as a non-profit organization in 1993. In 2010, KTPAA officially changed the name to Korean Performing Arts Center and built the studio near Korea Town in Midtown Manhattan.

KPAC is a home for the company, has rehearsal space for the artists, outreach programs for local audiences, and a school that offers music and dance classes to students of all ages. The organization serves a vital role in New York City through the teaching of traditional arts to members of the Korean community, and through performances for both Korean and general audiences. In addition, KPAC has played an instrumental role in instilling Korean cultural pride to second generation Korean Americans and in fostering intercultural dialogue with the American society at large. Since 1998, KPAC has received annual grants from the Folk Arts Program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). In 2013, KPAC was awarded a grant from New York Stage on the Arts for the Korean Music and Dance Education for Children.
