Khaleshia Thorpe-Price headshotAs an artist, I've co-written A Journey with Jazz, an interactive performance experience for young audiences, for the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning through the Arts. I perform in this production with the Wolf Trap Jazz Trio. I direct performances in the Folger Shakespeare Children's Festival and I am a dramaturge for the Young Playwrights Theater Festival. I have worked as an arts educator and manager for the past 15 years. As a teaching artist, I have facilitated residencies and workshops for children and adults for many arts organizations including Wolf Trap, Arena Stage, Young Playwrights Theater, Young Audiences of Maryland, Folger Shakespeare Library and M-NCPP. As an arts manager, I have coordinated workshops and residencies for thousands of students and educators in D.C., Maryland and Virginia. I have partnered with many organizations including the United States Department of State, the National Portrait Gallery and ZERO to THREE to provide unique arts learning experiences for all ages. In addition, I have managed enrichment and academic afterschool programs for D.C. Public Schools. I have earned an MA in Arts Management from the University of Central Florida and a BA in Theater Arts from Morgan State University.
