About Outdoor Classes

  • Faculty members and students ages 8 and over must wear masks if appropriate social distancing is not possible.
  • Any exercise that could end in two students colliding or coming closer than 6 feet will require a mask.
  • Maximum social distancing will be required during exercises that call for vocal projection.
  • Classes have a maximum of 6 students and are taught by a single faculty member.
  • Students who show signs of illness or who have been exposed to illness are respectfully asked to not attend.
  • Bring a water bottle, bug spray and wear sunblock
  • Classes meet 6 times with a 7th, bonus week scheduled for missed classes/extra time together, etc.
  • Unless otherwise indicated, outdoor classes meet in the Windsor Park yard of ExAb Director Kristin Henn.

Why is there overlap in age grouping?

Good question! We are all more than the sum of our years and we want to make sure that students feel comfortable in the group they’ve joined. High energy kid with a burning desire to be heard? Go younger. Focused kid with an ability to share time? Go older. It’s going to be awesome either way, we promise.
