Youth & Community Programs

Ryerson University’s School of Performance Youth and Community Programs provide an exciting theatre environment right in the heart of Toronto. Our Programs offer unique and creative experiences for ages 4 to adult. Participants use their imaginations, explore the world of the stage and expand their creative potential.  

The focus of all our programs is to develop confidence, imagination, teamwork, and acting skills through theatrical play and exploration. By welcoming youth to the world of the stage, we hope to instill in them a value for art and human connection. We are committed to helping each of our students shine and feel confident in their individual abilities.

“It’s a safe space where you can explore new things and put yourself out there without the fear of being judged. I've never been to a camp with such a positive/supportive environment, and it's been really great.”
