ACT After-School Classes

Para Español


Hello ACT Students and Families!

Our classes are a bit different this session, but we are nevertheless excited to bring you some theatre fun this spring taught by our wonderful teaching artists! Here are some things to know about our spring classes:
  • Classes feature new material each session and are designed to be repeated. If you’ve taken a similar class before, we hope you’ll join us again!
  • Don’t let tuition requirements stop you from signing up for classes! There is ample scholarship funding available so that everyone who wishes to participate can do so (as space allows.)
  • Classes will be limited to 8 students per session, and all of our theatre games, warm-ups, and exercises, and rehearsals will be physically distanced.
  • We have put in place a number of health and safety measures to address Covid-19. Please read the full guide here.
  • We are aware that because of class size limitations, some students may not be able to participate in classes this session. If you find that classes have filled before you could register, please email us to let us know! We are doing our best to offer the appropriate number of classes, and are interested to know if we can be offering more to meet the needs of our community!
