During a summer program with Shake It Out, participants will have access to state of the art theatre department facilities and SUNY New Paltz in upstate, NY. They will be housed in the campus dorms and eat in the dining hall. In addition, participants will hike, enjoy the natural surroundings of the Hudson Valley, and participate in classes offered by the campus’ library to conduct further research for their theater piece. Most importantly they will have the opportunity to develop meaningful and supportive friendships.
To participate in the Shake It Out, Inc. summer or weekend program, participants do not have to audition or come with any previous theatre/performance experience. Participants need only to have an open mind, an interest in the arts and a commitment to the program.
Registration for Our 2019 Summer Program will be available starting APRIL 2019. This year, we are pleased to announce that we will work in partnership with New Settlement Apartments Program for Young Women and Girls, SUNY New Paltz & The Bloom Sisterhood Society.
