Channie Waites

I am a performing artist, educator and facilitator. I have been with YANY for 3 years as a Literature to Life® actor for If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin, and as a teaching artist in theatre. I treasure the interactive and engaging nature of theatre as it lifts our stories from our hearts and imagination, and from this we devise our theatre. I am inspired by my family, the sun, water, and the love that aims to thrive and heal.
