We are dedicated to ongoing learning, professional training, and meaningful community engagement.
We embrace the idea that true knowledge begins with inquiry, from your personal history and interests, and that it is to be supported by teachers and artists who care about your growth, your enjoyment, your well-being.
Our three-sided approach, of learning, doing, teaching, demonstrates our belief that each of these are all required for artistic growth, while strengthening ensemble and support within our community.

Looking to bring more spontaneity to your work?
The winter session will explore (play TBA) by abandoning old concepts, and remixing it with contrasting contemporary text, improvisational techniques, games and ensemble creation. In the last session we share our reimagined version of the story, through monologues, scenes, movement, music, video, and new discoveries we make along the way.
In Studio: Thursdays 3pm-5pm January 28th-April 15th
A well-rounded improviser has a wide selection of skills they can call upon in the moment. The Tightrope Skills Workshop is a weekly class for members, with rotating guest facilitators, for you to try new skills, or brush up on the core practises.
