School Year Programs


This school year, your child will spend long weeks in a highly structured school environment absorbing important information. On weekends, days off, and after school, SteppingStone creates space for your young artist to express themselves, make cool art, and simply be themselves! Friendships blossom when youth are deeply engaged in a shared creative process that honors who they are and where they live. Join the dynamic and multifaceted community of youth artists who come together from different schools and areas of the Twin Cities to create art, together. SteppingStone Theatre for Youth is a joyful artistic home for all young artists, from those taking their first creative class to a seasoned actor or technician.
Art making experiences with SteppingStone are rich, sometimes messy, collaborative processes from the first name game through the final sharing for family and friends. Our classes, staffed by professional Teaching Artists, create space for youth to explore theatrical skill-sets while developing a strong sense of community and belonging.


We Believe

Young people are artists, makers, and doers. They need to belong and contribute to their world. When young people make art together, they change themselves, and the world around them, for the better.
