Dear STREB Community,

As we head into our tenth week (!!!) of STREB Remote , and as Monday marks the unofficial start of the summer season, we thought we'd take a moment to look back at this past spring. Since closing the doors to SLAM, we moved 37 weekly children's classes online; opened up our adult programming to the public for free on Zoom where we have welcomed over 385 students to 10 weekly classes; hosted 2 monthly Teen/Tween Action Clubs; continued school partnerships virtually; and even hosted our first-ever virtual Action Maverick Awards Benefit. We've taken the opportunity to dig into our archives and share rare footage paired with insightful interviews with Elizabeth Streb on her process; we've peeked into the lives of our Action Heroes, and we even premiered a new work.

It's been a whirlwind, yet we've been energized and inspired by everyone who has united to support us and joined us for our programs. You have fueled our passion to move doggedly forward, and have helped us gain insight into the essence of our mission so we can continue to deliver it in new ways.

And so, we are excited to announce our first
Action Heroes: Home Season @ Home
Fri, June 26, 7 pm
Save the date, and watch this space for details!
This week, Elizabeth brought us back to AIRLINES , a piece she made right after her classic solo LITTLE EASE.


And we were honored to have our remote programming featured on NY1 with Roger Clark.

Please note that no classes will be held on Mon, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day. On Wednesday, we are introducing another NEW class with España-Streb Trapeze Academy Director Bobby Hedglin-Taylor. "Stretch 'n Roll" is a 30-minute "hump day" session focused on relieving tension through stretching techniques with a foam roller (or 2 towels!).

Have a stimulating, peaceful and present week!
