Models aren't just born with the ability to command the catwalk. Rather, that combination of grace and assertiveness takes serious training with fashion experts. With more than two decades of industry experience under their impeccably coordinated belts, the instructors at Strut Modeling House provide mentoring and insight into the couture world. Students as young as 7 learn posing fundamentals during Diamond In The Rough, an intensive nine-month course that covers the intricacies of both modeling and acting during weekly sessions. The school also offers courses for those who don't aspire to a career in clothing; their four-month Strut Esteem course aims to instill students with the confidence needed to let their inner beauty shine.

When you walk into The Toy Museum of NY, you might see a Raggedy Ann doll. And another. And then another. Through this head-spinning proliferation of Anns and other characters—from Shirley Temple to Howdy Doody to Mr. Potato Head—kids and nostalgic adults explore changes in toymaking trends. Much of the collection of hundreds of dolls, games, and figurines from the 1880s–1980s is behind glass, so little hands get their passport to this wonderland of playthings via Queen Marlene's Toy Theatre. Kids gather around her singing, dancing highness for an illustrated tour through toyland as they’re invited up on stage to don costumes, play instruments, and perhaps diagnose an ailing doll’s stuffing troubles alongside other energetic, quick-witted actors. They can also attend the Special Toy Invention Program and learn about the invention of such cornerstones of American childhood as the Slinky, the Etch-A-Sketch, the Frisbee, and the empty refrigerator box.

A melody flows out from behind the closed door of the studio as a student's voice traverses octaves and hits each note squarely. Under the guidance of an instructor armed with professional performing experience, students refine their singing techniques during voice lessons that can cover any style, from rock to musical theater to falsetto whale calling. In addition to private lessons, students can brush up their vocal cords during group classes such as audition prep or master classes with opera singers.
