Troubadour Theatre is offering online classes in acting, musical theatre dance, music and more through June for ages 7-18.
We know that at this time, many kids are eager to be able to be able to see their friends again, and while we feel it's not safe to do so with our usual in-person summer camps currently, we will have a focus in our online classes on keeping the students connected and socializing with each other, and we will continue to provide them with a place to make friends and create art together, just safely from home!
Also, if anyone has been financially impacted by COVID-19 and can't afford classes or camps at this time, please know that we still offer scholarships. We don't want any kids to have to miss out on the summer theatre just because of finances. So just email email@example.com if you would like to apply for a scholarship, we just have a simple scholarship form to fill out.
Here's our online class schedule:

Requirements for online classes: All classes (except for D&D which is on Roll20) will be taught through video conferencing meetings on Zoom (Zoom is free for students to use). So students need to have a computer (PC or Mac), tablet, or phone. It is preferred to use a computer if possible as the desktop version of Zoom has full functions. Students will also need wifi/internet, a front-facing camera, mic, and speakers/headphones.
