Prior to the start of the school year, our amazing roster of Opening Act Teaching Artists gathered together at Fall Training to prepare for another exciting year of programs! This year we welcomed 12 new Teaching Artists to our incredible team.
We started the semester off strong with our awesome Teaching Artist teams postering schools and handing out flyers to recruit aspiring actors, performers, comedians, writers, poets, and creatives! This year, we’re excited to have programs at 54 of NYC’s most under-resourced schools.
Start of Programs
With training, postering and recruiting finished, Opening Act workshops are now in full swing! Ensembles have been solidified, students have started creating exciting characters and stories, and Teaching Artists are continuing to facilitate connections and exciting discoveries for their students!
