Dear CORE Theatrics community,


Before a first step, note or word, every dancer, musician and actor takes a breath. This breath not only releases everything in the body, but it also allows new air to enter, so that the performer can express their vision. After nearly 20 years of teaching, and eight years at CORE, I am confident in the education, challenge, breakthroughs, unconditional support, and artistry we as a community have taken part in.  Our belief that CORE is a unique place for young adults to be challenged and to flourish is stronger than ever.


It is from this place of strength that I’m recognizing and embracing that now is the time for CORE to take a breath; to refine what it is we do so very well, and merge those things into a new expression of our vision.


Part of this “breath” will be to form a non-profit, whose board members will bring a balance of strengths, wisdom and experience—so that together, we can fully realize the vision I first dreamed many years ago. CORE is committed to having a full complement of classes, coaching, dance, productions and partnerships, and I’m excited to continue to lead our CORE community.


As of January 1, 2015, CORE Theatrics will be closing our physical studio space. I want you to know, however, that I’m not going anywhere! I will continue to foster individual actors in their journeys through the following activities: Private Coaching, Connections Drama, and Small Group Acting Intensives. You can find details at  I look forward to continuing to work with each and every one of you.  


Change is a constant in life, and if we don’t allow for change we will miss our opportunity to grow and take new directions in our journey. Consciously leading CORE to take a breath is both exhilarating and a leap of faith.  Thank you all for being part of the CORE community and for your support now and in the future.
