Welcome To

New York Star Club 

Welcome to New York Star Club. We are an Acting School based out of New York City designed for children ages 5 and up. We, as theatre artists, believe that acting is a great way to teach children valuable life skills, while simultaneously encouraging them to follow their dreams. Our mission is to build your child's confidence and communication skills while encouraging authenticity: How can your child become the best version of themselves that they can possibly be? We want to have your child prepared for their next step in life, whether it is into an audition room, into a job interview, or just to make friends for life!

About us

Where It All Began:

Pursuing an artistic career for a child can be an exhausting, emotional journey. Whether your goal is to learn new skills, build confidence, or become a STAR, New York Star Club is the perfect place to build the foundation. As a student here, you will have access to our amazing, supportive network throughout your child's time performing. We’re dedicated to teaching your child the skills and providing the hands-on experience necessary for successful futures.

 
 

Our classes

Here at New York Star Club, our classes are split by ages and interests. We have three different age groups, and each group is based on a different point in the formation of a star in the night sky: 

Our youngest group is called Protostar and this includes ages 5 to 9. The protostar refers to an early stage in the evolution of a star, our objective is to build confidence and developmental skills through energetic song, games, and dance. 

 

Our next group is called Tauristar and it includes children ages 10-14. Tauristar is when a star is still in the earliest stages of formation. In our tauristar classes, we will be focused on building confidence and teaching life skills through method acting, focused discussions, monologue training, voice training, movement, and audition preparation. 

Sunstars are the biggest in the solar system. Our sunstars range in age from 15 to 18 years old. Sunstars will experience method acting training, stage training, monologue training, audition preparation, and how to approach and breakdown dramatic text. 


We also offer private acting and vocal coaching for all ages. These offer more personalized monologue and audition training. In our vocal coachings, your star will learn how to sing like a rockstar, learning vocal exercises, breathing techniques, and stage presence along the way. ​

Acting Coach

Anna graduated from Binghamton University in 2018.  She studied business and theatre, and has a deep passion for bringing happiness to the world. 

As a coach for the New York Star Club, she hopes to encourage young minds to think outside the box, to be creative, and to fearlessly go out into the world to achieve their dreams. Some may say that the sky is the limit but why limit youself to the sky when there are footprints on the moon? when asked how her friends might describe her, Anna says, "my friends describe me as warm and colorful which reminds me, I have a rainbow crepe cake to finish." Outside of NYSC you'll find her  attempting to successfully recreate the latest viral recipe, in the park with her head stuck in a book (or behind a camera), or testing the newest colors of eyeshadows in a makeup store. She is a Jackie of all Trades with endless hobbies that she hope to draw from in her classes.
