Explore drama like never before with these super fun after school workshops--now online! We offer 6-week and 4-week sessions led by professional teaching artists and meet once a week for 50-75 minutes.
With a wide range of student-inspired themes, these workshops are jam-packed with new creative ways to play. Students can fine tune their acting skills, practice creative writing, and make music together-- all while building social emotional skills and meeting new friends in SF and beyond. Each week, you’ve got an appointment with adventure!
We are closely monitoring San Francisco's reopening plans. If and when we can, we'll transition classes to in-person/onsite at NCTC. As always, the safety of our students and teaching artists comes first in these decisions.
