About Theatre Within Workshops

For over a half century, Theatre Within has offered transformational workshops in creative expression and mindfulness, with an emphasis on opening the heart and being fully present. Established in 1962 by Alec Rubin, the foundational tenant of the workshops is liberating: Your real voice is your creative voice. The workshops provide a safe and supportive space for self-expression and deep introspection.

“The core of the work is improvisational,” say Artistic Director Joe Raiola, who studied with Mr. Rubin for over 25 years. “To keep growing we must keep affirming our commitment to becoming more conscious and sharing our journey along the way. The workshops provide the training and encouragement that empower us to do that.”

Since 2015, Theatre Within workshops have been offered at no cost to those whose lives have been impacted by cancer at Gilda’s Club, NYC. Workshop participants are children who have lost a parent to cancer, children with a parent in treatment, adult cancer survivors, and adults in treatment. Current ongoing workshops include The John Lennon Real Love Project (songwriting workshop), The MAD Art Workshop, and Imagine Peace, Practice Peace, a meditation workshop. In addition, Theatre Within offers ongoing workshops in meditation that are free and open to the public.

Workshop offerings vary from season to season and may include classes in authentic improvisation, songwriting, illustration, singing, meditation and more.
