HOW THE STUDIO WILL BE STRUCTURED ONLINE

The studio will be held online via Zoom for two hours each day. Participants will be asked to join for the entire time in order to create a community-like experience of peer support, observation and performance.

Adam Kantor’s Broadway Studio will be held online via Zoom the week of Monday, June 22, through Friday, June 26, from 2-4 PM each day.
