HCA invites you to sign up for our Online Arts Workshops in July!

During the time of COVID-19, HCA is excited to provide people of all ages and abilities with an artistic outlet, and an opportunity for our community to connect creatively – even at a physical distance. Open to HCA students and non-students alike! Classes are live-streamed through the free Zoom app.   Zoom dance sessions will also be recorded and sent to registered students so that they can practice at home.

Please note the cut-off registration time for each class (24 hours for dance classes, one week for the acting class).

If we DO NOT reach minimum number of participants required to run each class, we will notify participants approximately 24 hours in advance of the class, and postpone by one week. If we DO reach minimum numbers, HCA will open up dance classes for drop-ins at a higher cost per session; drop-in registration will close 1.5 hours before each class.
