The Theatre Centre

The 2020 Digital Volcano Conservatory

Presented by Volcano in partnership with The Theatre Centre

Volcano’s annual offering of workshops provides access to alternative training in performance styles from around the world, taught by master teachers. The programs invite participation from all kinds of artists — directors, actors, dancers — whether new professionals or seasoned practitioners, who are looking to expand their horizons and delve deep into new artistic territory.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the 2020 Conservatory will be offered digitally and FREE to all participants. To guarantee a rich and rigorous training experience, class sizes in the Conservatory are small and space is very limited. To reserve your spot, click the button below. Spaces in class will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis

This year Volcano is offering two types of classes; small group and one on one. The small group classes are week-long intensives where you will meet daily with your cohort and instructor. The one on one classes will be individual appointments scheduled with the instructor taking place once throughout the week.
