Brooklyn Center History

Established in 1954, Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts at Brooklyn College (BCBC) is a community-based presenting organization located on the scenic campus of Brooklyn College. The mission of BCBC is to present outstanding performing arts and arts education programs, reflective of Brooklyn’s diverse communities, at affordable prices. A central part of BCBC’s mission is to introduce young people to the performing arts, enhance their creativity, and expose them to new cultures and ideas. As one of the largest arts education presenters in the Brooklyn, BCBC annually welcomes over 70,000 people, including 46,000 schoolchildren, parents, and teachers.

BCBC is committed to presenting emerging and established artists from around the world.  Artists and companies that have graced the BCBC stage include Luciano Pavarotti, Isaac Stern, Gregory Hines, Beverly Sills, Ray Charles, Itzhak Perlman, Martha Graham, Suzanne Farrell, Margot Fonteyn, Ballet Folklórico de México de Amalia Hernández, Les Ballets Africains, Moiseyev Dance Company, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, The Acting Company, and National Dance Theatre Company of Jamaica.

BCBC works with partners such as Brooklyn College and the Brooklyn Arts Council to present innovative programming such as “Brooklyn On My Mind,” a literary discussion series focusing on Brooklyn writers, and “Folk Feet,” a free event celebrating the rich folk dance traditions of Brooklyn’s diverse communities.
