CITY YOUTH ACADEMY

City Youth Academy

With the evolution of the COVID-19 situation worldwide, and to help slow the spread of this virus, Soulpepper has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 City Youth Academy.  Ensuring the health and wellbeing of our youth, guests, staff and artists is always our top priority. Thank you for your interest in this program and, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our education department at education@soulpepper.ca.


This six-week program offers ten young people (ages 16-19) from across Ontario performance training led by Soulpepper Artists. Participants engage in rigorous performance training and artistic development as integrated members of the company. Projects have included include: scene study; creation; training in movement, voice, ensemble, writing, and more. Each City Youth Academy Artist will be paired with a Soulpepper Mentor. This program is designed to inspire personal creativity, artistic discipline, and to support young artists in the development of their artistic practice.
