We hope that your families are continuing to stay safe and healthy throughout this COVID-19 health crisis. Thank you for your continued support of ETC as we navigate this challenging time.
ETC continues to reflect on the changes we have adapted to since the beginning of the pandemic. We are proud of how quickly our teaching artists and students adapted to create successful online programming through Collaborative Classroom, a series of online classes and workshops designed to bring theatre education directly to you. We began partnering with Outschool and OnZoom platforms to reach even more students across the country. We led students to create short films through ETC-on-Film, created virtual performances for Main Stage Residencies, started a brand new class for adults, and provided programming for students 3-103, all virtually!
This spring and summer we are gearing up to bring back our in-person programming including our Neighborhood Classes, the Falls Church Spring Break Camp, and our popular Summer Camps for ages 3 - 18. Registration for Spring and Summer Camps is now open! We have been working hard to set up new policies that allow for flexibility, as we understand it is hard to plan ahead. We will continue to update our in-person policies and procedures as we closely monitor recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health and government authorities for best practices.
Our ongoing commitment is to offer programming in a format that works for you. Which is why we will continue to offer innovative classes, workshops, main stage residencies, and camps both virtually and in-person in the months to come. Stay connected by subscribing to email updates here.
Right now, your continued support enables ETC to offer creative learning opportunities for the community. Your tax-deductible donation will help us continue to meet students where they are, support our staff of professional teaching artists, and meet the changing needs of our community. On behalf of everyone at ETC, be well, be safe, and keep creating!
