Star Kidz is the unique after-school performing arts program that combines singing, acting and dancing – all in ONE class for girls and boys ages 3-17. We emphasize the importance of maintaining a small student-to-teacher ratio. One of our core philosophies is that every child has a talent for creative expression. Some kids come in with tons of confidence, wanting a career onstage, and others enter the classroom super-shy and are just hoping to enjoy themselves and develop a sense of confidence. We celebrate that variety.
We introduce our Pre-K students to music as a means of expressing themselves vocally, dramatically and through dance, with the goal of building confidence and poise. With all aspects of our acting, singing and dancing classes for children in NYC & Westchester, we make great use of repetition to reinforce learning while having a blast.
Our K/1 students are given the tools they need to prevent bad vocal habits — teaching them that their voices are instruments. The dance is designed for children to express themselves with fun and exciting choreography to clean, upbeat dance songs. Using drama games and lines from our original play, we teach our young actors how to create characters, while giving them an outlet to bring their imaginations to life. The unique combination of dancing, singing, and acting classes for children in Westchester & NYC gives them a new-found confidence and fosters a love of the performing arts.
In our singing, acting, dancing classes for 2nd and 3rd grade children, our students learn techniques to develop their skills and take their talent to the next level! Our 2/3-grade students work on improving their singing skills, including vocal strength, breathing technique and expression through song. Students are encouraged to memorize scripts and are taught acting strategies to develop their characters, emotions and movement within the character. In dance, they are challenged with a wide variety of music genres. More complex steps and combinations are introduced, with an emphasis on self-expression and interpretation.
Our advanced program of acting, dancing and singing classes for kids in NYC & Westchester focuses on students in grades 4-7 and 8-12 who are ready to take their singing and acting techniques to the next level. The emphasis is on learning essential skills for performances and auditions. Through in-depth character preparation and using exercises that explore their inner selves, the students learn how to break down their scenes or monologues.
In singing, students work with an accompanist who transposes and arranges the songs to suit their voices. We teach specific skills and techniques such as breath control, voice projection and the art of telling a story through a song.
Our short Spring Into Summer session allows students to continue to enjoy their Star Kidz experience in a fun, non-performance based format. It is perfect not only for the current student who wants to continue on with Star Kidz before summer vacation begins, but also the new student who would like to give the program a try for the first time. There is no performance in this class.
Our focus in these performing arts classes for children in NYC & Westchester is on creativity and imagination with different acting games, singing lessons and dancing all in one weekly class.
