Gender diversity scholarships:
Boys are often underrepresented in programs teaching drama, dance, and song. We encourage you to come and give these historical arts a try! SHAK programs tend to draw together creative, strong-minded, curious young individuals who enjoy discovering a sense of community together. Boys and gender-nonconforming kids attending a theater, dance, or singing program for the first time are invited to take 15% off your tuition level.
