This fall From The Top Arts will be re-starting our weekly training and rehearsal evenings. ‘Q2Q Winnipeg’ will have options for a variety of ages -children to adults – and will involve instruction and training, and service opportunities, in a group setting through such areas of the physical arts as Musical Sign, Drama, Mime, and more. At this point in time we are tentatively planning on meeting on Tuesday evenings. The start and end times and location in Winnipeg are still being confirmed. Our first evening will be sometime near the end of September or first half of October. If you are interested and would like to be kept updated as we finalize details please let us know through our ‘Contact Us’ form here on our website.
