“Lookingglass has made my child a better artist, and a more confident person. It has taught her the joys of working with a group of peers to create something magical. The Lookingglass training and ensemble building are fantastic!”

“Lookingglass has a true focus on creativity, exploration and taking chances that not only allow students to engage with challenging material, but also to develop core acting skills without them even realizing that’s what they are doing!”
