Which class is right for me and my artistic goals?
We pride ourselves on providing accessible pathways for students of all experience levels and interests.
Look at our series descriptions below to see which is a right fit for you:
These are entry-level courses meant to serve as an access point for budding artists who are looking to build their knowledge in theatre. These courses will provide students with foundational skills in theatre as they begin or continue their artistic journey. If you have never been involved in theatre before or taken a course in acting, EMPOWER classes are a great place to start.
Lab classes are designed for students of any experience level to explore and develop specific skillsets. These classes often highlight specific theatrical disciplines (i.e., Voice Acting or Directing). Whether you are new to theatre or an experienced artist, these courses are a great way to build up your skillset and try something new!
Classes in the Craft series are designed to provide students with formalized training, specifically focused on the skill of acting. While not required, these classes are intended for students with previous theatre experience or those who are looking to begin a career in theatre.
To maximize the educational experience of all students involved: Craft classes require students to memorize text, rehearse on their own time, and commit to attendance of as many classes (as possible).
The CRAFT series is on a pre-professional track; Our Education Team and your peers will appreciate your forward-thinking and commitment in planning accordingly.
Will there be a final performance?
We strive to ensure all students receive the opportunity to end any class progression with a culminating event or performance. To this end, many of our adult students will be given the opportunity to perform their work, whether that be in class or in our rehearsal hall. All Performances, at the level, are at the sole discretion of our Teaching Artists.
