About Spark Arts

Spark Arts began in 2011 when the creative/married duo of Nathan Hartswick and Natalie Miller turned a small space in the South End of Burlington into a performing arts education studio on their wedding day.

Since then, they've made it their mission to offer high-quality, affordable classes in comedy, theater and music to students of all ages.

Nathan and Natalie have also spent 6 years building a successful comedy booking agency, producing standup and improv shows throughout the state of Vermont.

In 2015, they opened a physical venue called Vermont Comedy Club. In addition to offering shows five nights per week, they merged Spark Arts' popular comedy education offerings into the club.

Here's the 2011 pitch Nathan & Natalie made on their wedding night:

...and here's the 2014 Kickstarter that raised over $30k for the upcoming club:
