Professional Development


At Theatrical Education Group, we take education seriously. Our mission is to provide research-based solutions to many of the challenges facing arts educators today. From implementing a repertory based performance schedule to investigating how best to "flip" an arts classroom, we have the tools and experience to help guide you as you structure your curriculum.

More importantly, we understand how tight funding for the arts is today. With pervasive, ongoing cuts to funding of the arts in schools, arts educators are continually seeking new ways to maintain the curricular and artistic integrity of their programs. That's why all of our professional development seminars are free. We also provide all of the supplementary lessons and instructional materials at no charge. Offered multiple times throughout the year, all of our workshops are conducted by Justin Eick and can be tailored to fit the needs of your students. Simply select one of the workshops below and register online!
