Watch for any relevant COVID safety information as your class approaches.
Discover the fun and beauty of the Renaissance in drama, music, fencing, costume, and more! Act out famous scenes from Shakespeare with the help of SHAK's incredible collection of period costumes.

Near local median household income / net worth: The suggested tuition payment is $350-500, which usually covers around half of the program's actual cost per student.
Below local median household income / net worth: The suggested tuition payment is $200-300. Please pay whatever makes sense for your household, in line with the percentage you pay for your student's other extracurricular activities.
