The Irondale School of Ensemble Theatre began in the summer of 2004. It exists to advocate for the art of ensemble theatre, to train actors to be able to carry on the traditions of ensemble theatre, to engage in a dynamic involvement with the international ensemble theatre movement and to work to establish educational collaborations with other practitioners of ensemble theatre.
Fields of study for performer creators include collective creation, group writing and devising, the history of ensemble theatre, and community arts practice.
