A Note from Excused Absence:

It’s strange times. We all find ourselves faced with unexpected challenges, forcing us to improvise new approaches to teaching, performing and growing as artists.

With that in mind, we are working hard to create a new group of summer classes and camps that allow us to continue our mission while keeping our students and staff safe. Altered to maintain best safety practices, we still plan to offer some of our in person camps. Other have been replaced others with online versions. As we update this page with new listings and safety practices, please feel free to reach out with questions, suggestions or additional information. or 512 809 0017. Be nice though, if you could. Pandemics are stressful.
