Jan Slavin is a writer, singer, stand up comedian and teacher who brings her joy of theatre, music and performance to young students.


Jan creates a nurturing environment, where students' voices, ideas, creativity and collaboration skills 

can be applied to numerous life experiences. By accepting and including each individual within the group, we will encourage self confidence, creativity, concentration, communication, and trust. Fun is at the root of all of our theatre games, improvisations and other creative activities. 


Jan studied at the renowned Goodman School of Drama and teaches classes at CPS, The Music House and Marsha's Music as well as after-school programs around the city of Chicago.
