Next Steps classes are designed to help students with autism take their next steps as an artist and a person. First Stage creates a safe space for all students to be creative and be themselves without judgment or fear of failure. 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.

In this Acting class, students will explore character, relationships, action and text while developing overall acting skills and confidence.

Class Sizes: 8 students; our classroom model includes teams of lead teachers, special education professionals, and teaching assistants with approximately a 2:1 student to teacher ratio. Family aides may accompany a student to class as necessary and agreed upon between the family and First Stage.
