NYC-Based Actor and Teaching Artist

Sydney graduated with honors from Barnard College of Columbia University with Theatre and Education Studies degrees. She has also trained at the British American Drama Academy, the Guildhall School for Music and Drama, Columbia University’s Paris campus, and Northwestern University. She has robust training in classical and contemporary drama, a diverse range of dance and movement styles, and singing and vocal techniques.

Her experience as a performer spans over a decade and her most recent work has included Shakespeare, devised dance theater, and new plays. Sydney is passionate about stretching the bounds of what theatre can be in both form and content and exploring the intersection of her queer and Jewish identities through her work.

In her work as a teaching artist, she sees theater as a vital medium through which to teach self-advocacy skills and instill confidence in young people. She is committed to contributing to a more equitable and inclusive theater landscape in her work both as an artist and educator.

First Year of College Wrapup

During my first year at Barnard College, I’ve performed, worked on, and written productions for Columbia University Players, Kings Crown Shakespeare Troupe, NOMADS (New and Original Material Authored and Directed by Students). I also just closed my first show with the Theatre Department at Barnard: The Penelopiad.

This summer I will be doing an internship for a media company that creates content for kids with learning disabilities, combining my passion for the arts and for early childhood education.
