From the Education Team
Our education team is hard at work to offer students opportunities to learn more about the performing arts industry, despite the closure of our theaters. Take a look at the programs listed below.
This fall, our Spirit Square campus will open exclusively for 6th - 12th-grade students to engage, collaborate and train alongside other creative teens in a controlled space with independent workspaces for the virtual school day and theater-centric activities during breaks. Students can register by day of week for month-long sessions.
The all-new Arts Educator Network serves performing arts educators from Charlotte area schools who are involved in drama, musical theatre, or dance curriculum or productions, via digital and in-person professional development sessions. Membership is free and open to active arts educators from Charlotte and surrounding area schools.
