First Stage creates a safe space for all students to be creative and be themselves without judgment or fear of failure. Next Steps classes are designed to help students with autism take their next steps as an artist and a person, allowing them the opportunity to learn social skills among their peers while participating in theatrical and musical activities. Guided by our philosophy of teaching life skills through stage skills, students will experience the joy of acting, music, and movement each day with a team of teaching artists and special education professionals.
