Julia has been enthusiastic from the start. Her confidence in all areas of performance has changed dramatically. Your talent, professionalism, respect for the art and the children– all that works for my girl. We’ll see you in the fall.”-Lauri

*Note: All classes meet once a week.
Each week in our singing, dancing, acting classes for kids in Westchester & NYC, our kindergartners and 1st-graders rush into the classroom to announce what songs they can’t wait to sing! And now that they’re learning to read, the karaoke screen and printed lyrics reinforce that learning in a fun way.
As with all of our Star Kidz classes, in K/1 we give students the tools they need to prevent bad vocal habits — teaching them that their voice is an instrument and offering a beginner’s understanding of how vocal exercises work mouth muscles and reinforce pitch learning. We continue that work with age-appropriate song choices, happily expanding their repertoire to include Broadway songs from beloved shows, while many enjoy singing from shows they are doing in their school musicals. The result is an excitement that builds all semester long.
In their dance, they possess the kind of energy, expressiveness and eagerness to learn that not only makes it a blast for them, but also for our teachers! We engage them in a variety of drama games and improvisation. Every other week, we work on our original script, which you will see at their performance. Each session focuses on a different theme, using props/costumes to help them convey meaning in their work.
