Ryan Emmanuel-Cooke
Director of Fine and Performing Arts

Welcome to the Fine and Performing Arts in West Hempstead Union Free School District. Our students are known for providing performances that are significant for both technical proficiency and artistic excellence. District programs annually place numbers of talented students in the regional, area, state, and other competitions. Whether your children are interested in art, band, chorus, dance or theatre, we offer outstanding programs at all grade levels. 

Elementary programs educate students' minds, stimulate their creativity, and provide them with excitement and self-discipline that last a lifetime. At the secondary level, fine arts classes center on both curricular and extra-curricular activities. Students participate in a variety of activities.
