Hi All! My name is Emily Herman and I am going to be your instructor for these classes. I just graduated with my BFA in Theatre at Michigan State University. I had a minor in musical theatre and a focus in educational and children’s theatre. I have taught in a variety of theaters including MTC! I was a teaching artist intern at Seattle Children's Theater, and I currently work with OpenSpot Theatre. I am so excited to share my love of theatre and teaching with your students.
