Revels' 2020 Summer Enrichment Program

Program Cancelled

Just like much of the world today, we face a high number of uncertainty and shifts in our societal needs as it relates to our health and safety.  With that, I regret to announce that our Summer Enrichment Program will be canceled due to low enrollment. We had positive feedback before the creation of this program, but as time went by, the interest to engage in this program was justifiably overshadowed by the updates with the current pandemic. 
 
Our hearts are crushed that we are unable to do what we do best; celebrate cultural and tradition through arts together as one. We look forward to the day we can enjoy our time together. In the meantime, we are looking at more online or hybrid options which will ease the concerns of health and safety.
