Next Stage Studios
The spotlight can be a lonely place. But the accomplished instructors have been there before, acting in venues across the country. Now, they use this professional industry experience to inspire fledgling performers to step fearlessly into the light. With workshops, group classes, and private lessons, students from age 7 to 18 can bolster their stage confidence, audition techniques, and Elizabethan fluency. They can also increase their musicality with the studio's private instrument lessons. Next Stage Studios also organizes the Broadway Bound summer day camp, where workshops with coaches and local celebrities culminate in a revue-style showcase.
