How do I join the studio?
Email us! All students, regardless of experience level, must meet and interview with Artistic Director, Matthew Corozine. Interview will be in person or on zoom. Based on your professional and artistic needs and goals, and studio availability, you will be placed into a class. Please email email@example.com to schedule your interview!
I see you have in person classes, is there a covid vaccination requirement?
Yes. At this time, due to the intimacy and close proximity of artists at MCS, all in-person students, faculty, and staff are required to have completed one of the three CDC-approved vaccines before entering the studio. MCS has also installed a new HEPA air purifier as an added precaution. Please feel free to email admin with any questions or concerns.
I see MCS hosts Resident Artists. How do I become one?
All Resident Artists are individuals or a team of artistic collaborators who have been using their art to further their communities. From creating and producing new works, to writing collectives,, to hosting or creating coaching and workshop sessions to expand an actor’s artistic pallet, Resident Artists have been invited to bring their work to the studio as a way of expanding and strengthening our MCS community.
Please visit the Resident Artists page to meet our current roster of collaborators.
If you are interested in being a Resident Artist, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
