About Joan Aboff
This award is being given in honor of the late Joan Aboff. Ms. Aboff was a strong supporter of local arts organizations and was very involved with her community. She volunteered frequently with the Huntington Arts Council and the Art League of Long Island. We appreciate her passion and dedication for the arts.
Usdan is an award-winning not-for-profit day camp for the arts and has been named a “Best Of” camp by TimeOutNY/Kids, and by NY Metro Parents. Diverse and playfully rigorous, for over fifty years we have brought world-class teachers and visiting artists – actors, directors, playwrights, painters, sculptors, musicians, composers, dancers, poets and novelists – to teach and collaborate with Usdan campers ages 5 to 18. On 140 acres of natural beauty, students find the literal and metaphoric space to push their existing talents and delve into new ones. With nearly 50 classes and 1,300 students each summer, every camper from beginning to advanced is guided on a path of individual creative growth by a team of artists and talented arts educators. Our alumni include Natalie Portman, Jackie Hoffman, Olivia Thirlby, Stacey London, and Lisa Gay Hamilton; singers Jane Monheit, Taylor Dayne, and Mariah Carey; award-winning playwright Michele Lowe, Grammy-Award winning producer Adam Abeshouse, Broadway personality Seth Rudetsky, Juilliard conductor Adam Glaser, and members of major American orchestras, dance and theater companies.
