To enroll in one of our programs, please fill out the form below, and we will contact you via email to confirm. If you are new to our programs, we would love to meet you and your child before the sessions begin. We have found it is very helpful for young people on the spectrum to get a preview of the people and the space they will be working in. It makes first day far less stressful for them.
Parents/guardians of new actors may wait until the end of the first class to make payment, to make sure the child is going to enjoy the experience. Parents of returning actors do not have to resubmit the form. Notify us of your intent to continue via email to secure a spot in the next session and you may pay on the first day of class or camp.
Our classes are small by design and space is limited.
