Encore Stage & Studio brings theatre to City of Alexandria children with free online classes

Encore Stage & Studio is expanding its theatre arts outreach to the City of Alexandria with support from the City’s Arts Grant Program.

Encore created an “Encore On Demand” online series for Alexandria children ages 3 through 9. The series includes a variety of activities with teaching artists including movement, songs, arts and crafts, and more. Encore On Demand allows young City residents to enjoy theatre classes at home.

Since 2016, children have experienced the creative arts with Encore teaching artists in community centers. This spring, Encore expanded to young City residents of Wesley Housing with in-person theatre classes. Students build their creativity, teamwork and storytelling skills right where they live.

“All children deserve to experience the life-changing power of the arts, and we are thrilled to expand this program to Alexandria,” says Sara Duke, Executive Director.

“Theatre by Kids, for Kids!” founded in 1967, Encore Stage & Studio inspires young people to develop the creativity, empathy and confidence they need to create meaningful connections with peers and have a positive impact in their communities.
