Bad Dog recognizes that the cost of our classes can pose a barrier to entry for members of our identified diversity groups. In an effort to overcome this barrier, Bad Dog will award a total of 16 scholarships annually to study at the Bad Dog Academy (4 awarded to students starting in our Foundation 1 classes, 4 awarded to students continuing their studies in Foundation 2 or beyond, and 8 awarded to students studying at the Intermediate or Studio/Performance level).
Bad Dog also regretfully acknowledges the physical accessibility limitations of our current facilities. There is no wheelchair access or accessible washrooms at 875 Bloor St. W. - on site class space is up a narrow flight of stairs, while our off site classes at sister venue, Comedy Bar (945 Bloor St. W.), are down a short half-flight of stairs. We are in the process of partnering with Tim Rose and CANVAS to offer customized training opportunities for the physically disabled at an accessible off-site location, with our pilot drop-in class scheduled for Fall/Winter 2016. Please let us know if you would like further information.
*Bad Dog’s Inclusion Scholarships are not explicitly needs-based and are open to any persons who fall into one of our identified diversity groups. However, we do ask that applicants be mindful of their need when considering submitting an application so that those scholarships we award can be given to students who might not otherwise be able to benefit from our classes without support from the theatre.
