Welcome to our vibrant & unique theatre school!
Dear Parents & Students,
When we faced the beginning of this pandemic in March, I had to make a decision — almost immediately — what do I do about the theatre classes and the Teen Ensemble’s performances? For those of you that know me, you will understand that it is not in my nature to throw up my hands and say, “oh, well.” Instructors, Jenna & Gina and our wonderful Interns, also feel the same. We knew we had to quickly accommodate, even if we had never taught a theatre class on-line or navigated Zoom. I am proud of what we were able to learn and accomplish and terribly grateful for the patience of all the parents and students.
Please know I have spent the summer creating exciting curriculum for on-line engagement. I am a wiz at Zoom now and many theatre educators across this country are connecting, finding solutions and keeping the arts alive. We are also putting together a wonderful socially-distanced program for those who will enter our classroom with safety at the forefront of our plans.
Much has changed in our world. In the shuffle, I cling to those things that have not … my love of both theatre and teaching. I promise to enter the fall semester with a dedication to safety and creativity. We must find a way to continue …
I hope you and yours are staying healthy and happy. I look forward to seeing your masked faces or zoom boxes soon! In the meantime, should you have questions or concerns, please email me at email@example.com.
