About the Program

Afterschool Classes

Our after-school classes are kept small and intimate so that each child can receive the maximum amount of personal attention. This individual attention allows our teachers to set specific, challenging goals for each child in each class.

The purpose of our after-school classes is to encourage an environment where children can be creative, feel safe enough to take risks, and truly be themselves. Working professionals from the industry, with years of experience, teach these classes so we can ensure a fabulous experience for every one of our students. Each class has a fully developed curriculum that becomes more rigorous as the children get older and become more advanced. We want to challenge our students and help them strive to achieve more than they thought they could!

We want our students coming out of a semester having had a great time, feeling self-confident, and have greatly improved in the areas that they've studied.


Audition Only Performance Classes

Our audition only performance workshops and dance troupes are created for the older student who is more advanced and wants to immerse him/herself in the world of theater or hip-hop. Each workshop meets every week for a rehearsal-based class that culminates with a show in an Off-Broadway theater attended by many industry casting directors, agents and managers.

Commitment, passion, and enthusiasm are the qualities we look for in an Applause student. These classes are by audition only and are a very rigorous training ground for students who are interested in pursuing their passions further and taking their performance skills to the next level.
