Shake It Out, Inc. is founded on the premise that discovery of theatre arts is essential to youth development and contributes to the overall social and emotional well-being of young people.

Established in April of 2013 and based in Brooklyn, New York, Shake it Out, Inc. seeks to partner with a school or community-based organization serving young people, 12-17 years of age, from low-income communities and who do not have or cannot afford access to community theater arts programming. The organization will engage participants in creating original theater pieces based on the works of William Shakespeare in a safe and supportive after-school setting.
