How are classes conducted?
How can we contact you and find out more information?
It will vary based on the class (in-person or online). Both classes will focus on developing improv skills and incorporating character development in scenes and monologues. For Zoom classes, the breakout rooms will be utilized to ensure individualized instruction where students can engage in adapted theater games. If you would like to see a glance of what virtual classes look like, visit our "Blog" with recaps of our summer session or follow our Facebook page.

Where does my money go?
We are a small organization, so 100% of our profits are donated to a Black Lives Matter organization. We chose to donate all of our profits to The Black Theater Coalition because of the connection we had to their mission statement. This nonprofit's goal is to increase representation within the Theater World. Check out our homepage for more information on this nonprofit. We greatly appreciate any contributions you're able to make.
What is your Covid-19 Response?
Our safety precautions and policy follow the CDC government policies in place for childcare to ensure the safety of our students. All in-person classes are conducted outside but will be moved online in case of bad weather. Masks will be worn at all times, with students separated 6 feet apart. Any and all props, or equipment will be sanitized before and after use, while hand sanitizer will also be provided.
