the ampersand project

who are you when there’s no audience?

We believe great performers aren’t made on the stage, they’re built in the studio.
Not because they lose themselves in a part, but because they’ve found who they are as a person.
The Ampersand Project’s goal is to help you TAP into your best self, onstage and off.
Are you ready to say yes (…and)?


Whether in a crash course, skills workshop, or master class with a visiting artist, dive into fast-paced, high-level performance training promoting positive, holistic, and joyful growth from wherever you’re at. What don’t you know yet? What do you want to learn? What do you want to improve? Come to us or we’ll come to you – workshops are varied & customizable!
