The open house will take place in the theatre lobby located at 140 W. Tampa Avenue on the island in Venice.

Instructors include area professionals Brad Wages, Mary Kelly, Amy Blake, Becky Holahan, Lori Gaddis, Michelle Kasanofsky, Cathleen McClendon, Gladys Varga, Ronald Myroup, Peter Ivanov, Jan Wallace and members of the Venice Theatre Production Staff. Visiting artists from Brazil, Caio Stolai and Milena Costa do Nascimento, will be teaching the circus arts classes.

It is accredited by the Florida Department of Education. A limited number of scholarships are available for qualified applicants.
