PERFORMANCE ORIENTED PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS AND ALL SHAKESPEARE NERDS!
BECOME A BARDSTER!
The Bardster program sends teaching artists and directors into the classroom with a specifically designed curriculum.
Residences last from one week to several weeks. These performance-based sessions promote increased skills in listening, storytelling, memorization, articulation, public speaking, vocabulary, imagination, empathy and teamwork. Students experience Shakespeare as a contemporary and are impacted by the relevancy and power of Shakespeare’s enduring works and wisdom.

'REFLECTIONS' FROM THE BRONXDALE HIGH SCHOOL BARDSTERS
"The kids really loved it!" (10th Grade English Teacher, Julie Masarof, Bronxdale High School)
What was one activity/routine/reading, performing, discussions, working with partners/groups, paraphrasing that you really enjoyed and why?
"I enjoyed everything. Working with Ms.Tricia and Ms. Lee was amazing, because I always like to do things out of my comfort zone. And also I was able to learn new things with them, that I really never thought of. Another routine or activity I enjoyed was performing because its the best experience to do." (SY 2017-18)
"I enjoyed working with Ms. Tricia and Ms. Lee because acting is fun and they made acting fun and working with them helped me understand the subject matter." (SY 2017-18)
When students were asked, what is something we did this year that you think you will remember for the rest of your life.
"This year, I will remember acting the Macbeth play with real acting teachers." (10th grader SY 2016-17)
"Having actresses teach us how to act in Shakespeare and Macbeth." (10th grader SY 2016-17)
