Classes for Adults

Dear Community Members,

Thank you for your interest in our classes. Our work at STC Learning strives to provide a place for adults living in the DMV area to find community, cultivate connections, and explore artistic interests. Classes are open to all, regardless of experience.

We have classes available for those who are interested in acting, like to discuss and analyze the Bard’s work, or are looking to use theatre to build their skills in the workplace. Our Teaching Artists are theatre professionals working in the DMV and have the knowledge and skills to help you develop your artistry.

If you have any questions about STC Classes for Adults, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at, and I would be happy to assist you.

Thank you,

Raine Ensign

Getting Here

Are STC Adult Classes Metro Accessible? Yes. Our classes are held at 516 8th Street SE, which is about 2 blocks away from the Eastern Market Metro Station, accessible via the orange, blue, and silver lines. There are also several bus routes that run through the neighborhood. For more information, visit the trip planner on the Metro website or call 202.637.7000.

Is there parking available for adult classes? Limited permit and two-hour metered parking is available. However, Eastern Market is a busy neighborhood and we recommend using public transportation. If you need to drive, please allow ample time for parking, as finding a legal spot for the duration of class is often difficult. We also recommend you download the ParkMobile App to pay metered parking from your smartphone.
