View Bio

Welcome to YASI 2020! This is not quite how we expected things to be, but I am excited to offer programming and engagement for our young creatives.

One of my favorite parts about artists is we are masters at adapting. We can’t control situations but we can control how we react. Living through our current health crisis and looking at where the arts fit in has been eye opening. Quarantined or not, people need to be able to express themselves, to communicate, to have a say, a voice. We cannot connect physically at this moment but we must all find ways to stay engaged.

This summer’s offerings have three components. Morning classes focus on technique in a students chosen arts expression (theatre, musical theatre dance). The theme of the afternoon is “Coast to Coast” connections. My hope is to bring together not only students from around the country, but to create teaching artist partnerships from unexpected and non-traditional views all focusing on finding expression and student voice.

The day will conclude with Mastery Teaching Artist sessions. NJPAC’s best teaching artists will take a deeper dive into subjects of their passion.

It’s a first time for a lot of things. 2020 will be a year we’ll never forgot. I hope these new opportunities will strengthen not only ways of artistic expression but give a platform for young artist citizens to find their growing voices. So, what do you have to say?

Please read this important information prior to registering for any course

Your safety is our priority. Since the pandemic began, we’ve collaborated with medical professionals, invested in building upgrades, and put new procedures in place to protect our guests, staff, volunteers, and faculty. Just a few things you might want to know: Masks are welcomed but not required. Faculty and staff are required to be vaccinated. Students 5+ must show proof of vaccination prior to the first in-person session. Arts Education programs are at reduced capacity to allow for safe distancing. And you can feel safe knowing our HVAC system meets industry standards for virus ionization and filtration and our cleaning processes follow all CDC recommendations. Further details on program protocols are here and specific details on procedures are shared upon completed registration and during program orientations.

Tuition Information, Refund Policy and Attendance

Tuition must be paid in full or a payment plan must be in place prior to the first session.
If a student withdraws prior to the start of the first session, a full refund will be issued.
If a student withdraws after attending the second session, a 50% refund will be issued.
If a student withdraws after attending three sessions, all tuition payments are non-refundable.
*Important* If a student is absent for the first two sessions without any communication or advance notification, they will be automatically withdrawn from the program and the full tuition payment will be forfeited. This allows for additional students to join the program from the waitlist.
