Jason Sparks

In part 2 of our Directing 101 masterclass series, we’ll get hands-on with director and choreographer Jason A. Sparks! Join us on Wednesday, February 2 at 4:30 p.m. to talk through the process of preparing to direct your own show, participate in some directing exercises and activities to flex your creative muscles, and start thinking about how *you* would bring together a team of artists to make something magical. Note: You do NOT need to have attended Part 1 to participate!


JASON A SPARKS is a director and choreographer based out of New York City. Over the past 10 years, Jason has worked in a wide range of mediums, from Broadway to independent films, from concert dance to award shows, all while trying to stay true to his core belief that art has the power and responsibility to challenge, form, shape, and escape the world around us.

THE CREATIVE ARTIST NETWORK is a vast network of theater teaching artists who are eager to share what they’ve learned in their respective careers. They aim to bridge the gap between a practical understanding of techniques and the undeniable power of each student’s individuality and unique creativity, making space for artistic expansion.
