Learn about the annual PerformHER performance that brings together musicians, singers, and dancers in a musical tribute to women composers and songwriters.

A Tribute to Women, Composers, and Songwriters

Each year, the East End Arts & Music School collaborates with a local Dance Company in a musical tribute to women composers and songwriters. This year we are honored to be working with Studio East Dance Center, West Hampton NY.


Both schools offer students the opportunity to unleash their creativity and explore their artistic side. Through playing a musical instrument, singing, or dancing, these young people reject the negative influences of popular culture and embrace the positivity of the performing arts.

PerformHER is a unique collaboration between talented young musicians, singers, and dancers on the East End who participate in classes at EEA School and Studio East Dance Center.

This event pairs an EEA student on piano, violin, cello, or vocals with a dancer from Studio East, the music student selects a piece to represent a women composer, songwriter, or performer, and the dancer choreographs their dance to that selected song. This combination pushes each student to excel in their field, and both gain a beautiful performance experience.

EEA & Studio East take this opportunity during Women’s History Month to honor those that did not give up – who pursued their talent and left behind a legacy to be enjoyed for years to come.

In the last two years we had over 35 students performing and an audience of nearly 100. PerformHER is also an opportunity to raise money for our scholarship fund, expanding more possibilities for our young East Enders who cannot afford extracurricular classes in the arts, a chance to explore their creative side and follow their dreams.We look forward to performing at the Jamesport Meeting House again this year, Saturday, March 23, 2024 at 7:00 pm.

Each participating student receives two complimentary tickets, and all other guests pay $20.00 each.

Tickets are on sale now.

About the Performance

The annual joint performance brings together musicians, singers, and dancers to delight audiences with an eclectic combination of classical and current music.

Your ticket purchase supports scholastic opportunities for both performing arts schools so that East End area youth can participate in extracurricular classes in theatre, art, music, or dance regardless of their ability to pay.
