Paidia's Artistic Director and founder Sharon Penz has been producing, creating, and performing original theater, dance, and events for the community for over 20 years. Her unique approach to event design blends her expertise in production management with her skills in creative visioning. Sharon is the recipient of local and regional grants for her original work, and was selected as a NYFA MARK Bootcamp artist in 2013. She has performed, choreographed, directed, and conceptialized work for companies throughout the Hudson Valley region, and is the recipient of a number of grants for her original work. Sharon founded Paidia in the summer of 2017, at the urging of guests from her previous events. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to bring her creative expertise to new audiences outside of the traditional theater setting.
Paidia is named after the Greek Goddess of Play; an invocation of the imagination and recognition of the importance of immersive, interactive experiences within Paidia events.
