Huntington @ HomeSchool - Teacher Training

The Huntington Theatre Company's Education Department recognizes the challenges of remote learning, as all schools across the Commonwealth have closed due to Coronavirus.

We have curated a collection of classes and workshops that our staff and staff across the Huntington are willing to teach remotely, designed to last between 30 and 60 minutes. Please click on the register link and register below if you are interested. 

We are offering teacher training in which the teaching artist will reach out to you directly to set up a time that works for you. If you're looking for something that is not included in this list, fill out the final question in the form to request a workshop and we will do our best to get you in touch with someone. We are offering these classes via Zoom. If you use a different virtual platform for your classes, please specify when you are coordinating with the Huntington’s Instructor.

If you have any questions, reach out to us at education@huntingtontheatre.org.
