Humphreys School Musical Theatre Fall Classes

Sing! Dance! Act!

Fall classes are scheduled to start the week of Sep. 14th. We will begin the year with all classes online. 

After the first month of reopening, TUTS staff will reassess the conditions taking into consideration information provided by the Hobby Center, municipal entities, medical and science experts. 

When conditions improve, we are prepared to gradually roll out our hybrid training model that includes an in-person option. Select dance classes will take place in-person at our Hobby Center location. Additionally, these classes will be live streamed through  Zoom. All other classes will take place online as they have during the first month. Our goal is to gradually increase the in-person training options going into the second semester of the year.
