Ongoing Training

For alumni and theatre practitioners

NTS is committed to offering continuing education to our alumni and other professionals that is as rigorous as our core programs.

These training workshops allow professional artists to deepen their expertise and increase their skills. They benefit emerging or mid-career artists, recent immigrants seeking to adapt their international training to Canadian realities, and artists who wish to revitalize and challenge their ongoing professional practice with an intensive training opportunity.
