TUITION ASSISTANCE


• Tuition Assistance is available to any family / child in need of assistance, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, physical or learning abilities. If you feel your child(ren)/family may benefit from participation in theatre, the arts, or yoga practices, and that you need financial assistance, you are welcome and encouraged to apply.


• You may apply for Tuition Assistance by filling out the Tuition Assistance Request Form.


• You may only apply for Tuition Assistance for your own family/child(ren) – families who are interested in applying for and receiving Tuition Assistance must submit their own application.


• Tuition Assistance must be applied for prior to the start of a class, camp, workshop, or event.


• Tuition Assistance may not be retroactively applied to a class, camp, workshop, or event that has already begun.


• Tuition Assistance is made possible through our Student Sponsorship Program. The funds in this program are very limited; we will do our very best to accommodate every request, but please understand that filling out the Tuition Assistance Request Form does not guarantee assistance.

The Program

• Neighborhood Children’s Theatre is a creative endeavor that serves Pensacola and the surrounding areas with engaging

children’s yoga electives and performance art education for adolescents.

• Our goal is to teach children about art and creative expression while cultivating empathy, compassion and integrity

through storytelling.


• We look forward to expanding our catalogue of classes in the coming months to include theatrical arts and musical

disciplines.


• We believe the arts are essential.


• We believe that yoga is for everyone. No matter your shape, size, background, or beliefs… you can participate and be

“changed for the better.” (Yes, we just sang that.)


• We believe in cultural honoration. Yoga is a 5,000-year-old practice with roots in South Asia and East Africa. To honor the

cultures who gave us yoga, we teach multiple facets of the discipline: asana (postures and movement), breathwork, and

calming mindfulness. Our goal is to give a fulfilling experience, which touches the body, mind and heart, by presenting

both the philosophy and practice in an accessible yet honoring way. That’s why sanskrit (the ancient-Indian language),

mantras (words of encouragement), and mudras (hand gestures) are woven into our classes. Students will always be

encouraged to participate at their own comfort level.
