The deeper story behind Rebel Theatrics

View descriptionShare

Kellie Carroll doesn't believe that everything happens for a reason.
But she does believe you can make a reason out of everything, including personal tragedy.
Carroll is the founder of Rebel Theatrics. While it’s primarily a theater and dance training company, part of their curriculum is dedicated to mental health, because she feels there’s a huge lack of support in that area in the fine arts. 

It's support that she knows is needed after losing her brother, Scott, to a mental health crisis in May of 2017.

"We did not have much, if any, warning signs for his choosing to stop living his life," Carroll says. "In the process of my family healing from such a sudden, tragic and confusing loss...more and more (of my) students were coming to me...with bigger things about their self-worth and self-esteem and emotional health. And that's when I knew I wanted to be more than just a dance teacher and just a theater teacher."
So two years ago, Carroll and co-founder Lucas Atkins, founded Rebel Theatrics
