We offer a variety of free and low-cost classes to people of all ages, taught by company and guest artists. Ranging from storytelling to music, dance, writing, puppetry and more, our classes all share one element; they are grounded in moments of meditation. We inspire students’ creativity while also making a space for peace, fun and connection!
