Quick Facts

How does it all work with Zoom?

We will privately send each family a secured Zoom link or ID/Password for each class. Students will be let in via a “waiting room,” to ensure that only approved, registered students attend the class. Teachers will engage the students in 30-45-minute classes, on various topics. 

Explain the non-Zoom content?

Some content is just not applicable in a Zoom format; we are compiling videos and activities that your student can access on their own time to continue their learning!

  • All classes are taught by Youtheatre Teaching Artists.
  • Classes are taught virtually using Zoom, Flipgrid and other platforms.
  • Classes may also include materials for asynchronous learning.
  • Tuition required for registration.
  • Tuitions are non-refundable & non-transferable.
  • MCPA reserves the right to cancel any class; refunds are made for cancellation.
  • Participants will be notified 24 hours prior to the start of the workshop if it is unable to take place.
