Cade Hoffman

Instructor

A recent graduate from UNR and a lifetime Reno-ite, I’m relatively new to KidScape Productions and hope to really make some positive impacts. I was never very confident or easy to communicate with in my younger years, so hopefully my instruction can coax kids out of that phase of their lives and into a self-loving, triumphant one. During my short time with KidScape Productions so far, I’ve found that having fun is key. Fun is crucial to me as well. Luckily for these kiddies, I never plan on being anything but!

Dace Likethefish

Instructor
I’ve been studying and performing improv since 2013. Originally trained at Atlas Improv Company in Madison, WI, I’ve also studied with Monkey Business Institute, Come On Jackson, From Justin To Kelly, Empire Improv, and Reno Improv. I’m a strong believer in the potential of improv as a form of storytelling, community building, and personal growth through trying on new ideas. It’s a great privilege to empower our youth with these tools, while having a lot of fun in the process.

Eliot Current

Instructor
I am a hard working high school student who loves promoting better communication and life skills in kids and all people. I believe that communicating and communicating accurately can solve all problems. I have been with KidScape Productions as a student for many years and I hope to use that knowledge to help kids just like me, just like KidScape did for me when I was younger. Although all the learning stuff is important too the most important thing is to have fun, because if you don’t have fun you don’t really learn anything.

Rubi Kincannon

Instructor
Hi my name is Rubi Kincannon and I am a junior at Reno Highschool! I first joined KidScape Productions when I was 8 years old. I was a really quiet kid who was extremely hesitant to talk to people or try new things. KidScape Productions has full credit for the extroverted and out going person I have become. I completely fell in love with acting all those years ago and couldn’t imagine my future without it. It is my primary goal to make Kidscape as inspiring and life changing for the students as it was for me.
