Community Wellness Classes in Collier County
Wellness Through the Arts for All Ages
Our Wellness Outreach programs at TNP focus on providing health and wellness benefits to our community through the arts. From high school transition programs for teenagers with learning challenges to movement and improv classes for senior citizens with Parkinson’s – our classes and programs serve a wide variety of people in our community.
Classes are taught both on-site at schools, senior centers, and hospitals as well as online using a virtual classroom setting. Programs are customized for the ages and needs of the participants and are generally taught in an agreed-upon session length and schedule that works best for us and you.

“Our mission is inspiring our community and defining our culture,” said Craig Price, director of community education and wellness. “We make sure that every aspect of theater – singing, dancing, acting, improv, and volunteering – is available to everyone.”
To reach children with special needs or current life challenges, the Naples Players partners with organizations such as NCH Healthcare System, Collier County Public Schools, STARability, Grace Place Kids and Avow Kids.
These programs have continued online during the pandemic and are starting to open back up for in-person sessions.
During the “Improv for Communication Skills” class, for example, high school students in the school district’s transition program, who have intellectual disabilities, learn skills to help them plan for post-school work or studies when they age out of the program at 22.
