Chicago’s Premier Training Center for Actors since 1981

As creators and performers of art that relies on human empathy–we all must aspire to create a community built on respect, belonging, collaboration, and creativity.  As artists invested in exploring multiple perspectives and fostering social justice, we embrace the value of all people. We, therefore, reject any form of bigotry, discrimination, or hatred, and we seek to cultivate an environment in which our differences are explored with generosity and openness.
