Their websites said, "For the past 15 years our goal at NJSDA has been to provide the most professional and comprehensive theater training for our students ages 5 to 85. This moment in time is no different. After many conversations about how to make NJSDA as safe as possible, we have come to the decision to make our classes virtual until it is safe to return to our studios. While one of the many aspects of acting is learning to connect with other performers, we feel there is still much we can do online to keep the community connected and the learning process going.
In an effort to flatten the curve of contagion, we have been working on a virtual plan. We have a course of action that will allow us to maintain our standards of excellence. The ZOOM platform is very easy to use and will allow you to still take your classes at the regular time slot, just in the safe environment of your own home. Some teachers will teach from their homes. Some will teach from NJSDA alone to bring you a familiar background to support you through this time. All have devised lessons that will maintain your current level goals.
*Our Virtual Class Plan*
We urge you all to keep on working on your craft! NJSDA is here to provide that service for each of you at this time. We hope that having online classes helps to reduce your level of stress and anxiety in this uncertain time. Private coaching sessions are also available for specific needs. We wish everyone continued health. We will hold steady with you as we move towards the warmth of spring and the reprieve of this virus and its effects."
