Involucrando a las mentes jóvenes a través de la educación teatral

Our Youth Education Theater Programs Department is dedicated to introducing the joy and transformative power of theatre to the diverse youth of Los Angeles and beyond. Our commitment is to provide programs that are vital to unique populations, which empower children and teens to discover, develop and share their individual creative voices. We utilize “The Style”, our signature acting technique, based in the physical and improvisational form of Commedia dell’Arte, in all of our youth programs.
