Lindsay Redman is excited to be part of ECT as their first AmeriCorps volunteer. She grew up in the Western Mass area, identifying herself as a country mouse. Her love and passion for performing arts began at a very young age when she started dance classes and later on in life, theater. These passions took her to Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public School in South Hadley. During her time there, she focused on dance and performed all over the community, showcasing ballroom dance and performing in the school’s big musical productions. After graduating, Lindsay moved to Boston to attend Wheelock College, studying Developmental Psychology and Communications with a focus in Media Literacy and a minor in Community Arts.
After graduating from Wheelock College, Lindsay joined the AmeriCorps City Year program in Boston, where she worked in a fourth-grade inclusion classroom and a middle school after school program in Jamaica Plain. During her time there, Lindsay infused performing arts into her teaching and saw the joy this brought to all her students. Now her life has led her back to Western Mass to serve with DIAL/SELF and the Enchanted Circle Theater Staff.
