for ages 6 – 18!
We invite your young ones to continue playing, creating, and forming lifelong friendships this spring. In addition to creating characters and scripts, young actors have opportunities to produce their own work. Each Spring Fling class has a focus that varies from musical theater to sketch, improv, scene study, film/TV, and more, but all are rooted in the Atlantic Technique.
We are thrilled to finally be returning to the classroom! In order to safeguard the health of our entire community, we are requiring all incoming and current students to be fully vaccinated and boosted. Our COVID-19 vaccination policy applies to all Atlantic faculty, staff, and incoming/returning students. Students between the ages of 5-11 (who are not eligible for the booster) must be fully vaccinated. All students and faculty must wear a mask at all times while inside Atlantic spaces. Our facilities have been upgraded to meet and/or exceed air filtration standards as recommended by the CDC. We appreciate your patience and understanding!
Also, please note that parents and caretakers will drop off and pick up students from the main lobby. We will not be holding in-studio performances for our kids and teens classes, but will be providing a filmed version of many final shares for families to enjoy on their own time!
