WOW! What an eventful couple of weeks! Our Youth & Adult classes had their final sharings, both demonstrating what they’ve learned this semester and sharing their gifts with their family, friends, and our community. If that’s not what the holidays are about, I don’t know what is! Congrats to all involved!

From all of us at American Stage,

May millions of lamps illuminate your life with joy, prosperity, health and wealth forever. Wishing you and your family a very Happy Diwali!

Diwali is a festival of lights and one of the major festivals celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and some Buddhists, notably Newar Buddhists. The festival usually lasts five days and is celebrated during the Hindu lunisolar month Kartika. Diwali holds significance for Hindus as it symbolizes the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and happiness over sorrow

Today is the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month!

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.

The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.

LAST CALL for enrollment is Friday, April 23 at 12pm ET/11am CT to be able to secure a slot in this six-week masterclass with me and American Stage Education! ENROLL at americanstage.org/masterclasses!

On a personal note, American Stage is one of the organizations that has most unwaveringly showed care for me throughout this past year of extreme scarcity, leading with a spirit of generosity and compassion. While fighting their own battles in an industry of scarcity amidst unfathomable uncertainty, they have continuously affirmed their belief in me as an artist and their concern for me as a human being. I'm jazzed to partner with them on this deep dive into my work regarding wellness and storytelling. Support them and me by joining us on this magical journey!

Thanks to Mr. Patrick and Mr. Lyle for a super awesome Sizzling Summer Saturday class this morning! My young friend LOVED it and couldn't wait to tell her Mom everything and ask if we can sign up for the next one too! (She was quite disappointed she'll have to wait until August)
I’m such a big fan of the education of the arts and performing, and this seems like such an amazing and inclusive place to learn! I’ve always been a big fan of theatre, so providing a place for the next generation to learn is so important! The arts community here in Tampa/St. Pete is so lively and I just wanted to share an upcoming event that supports that notion and the arts, the Gasparilla International Film Festival! It’s coming up next week from the 17th to the 22nd and offers something for everyone, from romcom screenings to industry panels that seem like a really amazing opportunity. Personally, I’m most excited for the panels because not only are they free, but they also present an educational opportunity for students/young filmmakers to learn about the nuances and intricacies of the entertainment industry from the professionals themselves! Really just wanted to share, and thought it would be a wonderful opportunity for the arts/film in the Tampa area!
Our Financial Aide Deadline for our Youth American Stage Education classes has been extended to January 10th. There's STILL TIME to ignite your child's creative voice this Spring. Programs are offered for young creatives grades K-12. and led by working theatre professionals in a safe and supportive environment.
