Folk School teaches and celebrates folk music through classes, workshops, concerts, and community events.

The mission of the Folk School of St. Louis is to build community by providing educational programs that promote the learning, teaching, renewal, and perpetuation of traditional music and folk arts.

Regular weekly classes taught by some of the region's most respected traditional folk musicians, jam sessions, and master workshops allow students to interact with and learn from established musicians from both the St. Louis area and the rest of the country. The group-oriented programs also allow students to interact with each other, building a community of musicians of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels that can 'speak' the same musical language and gather informally and formally to make music. These interactions strengthen and preserve the music while it grows and unifies the local traditional music and arts community.

Folk School of St. Louis is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

The brutal rhythm of boxing underscores this brilliantly stylized drama. Rising black prizefighter Jay “The Sport” Jackson dominates his opponents, but the harsh social realities of the early 1900s force him to fight twice as hard to earn recognition outside of the ring. Loosely based on iconic fighter Jack Johnson, The Royale brings us ringside to one man’s quest for victory against all odds.

Shows are Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesdays thru Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 7 PM, with matinees Saturdays at 4 PM and Sundays at 2 PM.
