Fairfield Performing Arts Studio has been a huge part of my life for five years. The three weeks of camp is always the highlight of my summer. Thanks to this camp, my acting, singing, and dance has improved dramatically, and the way the counselors teach keep all of us wanting to learn even more. I think I can speak for all the campers when I say this camp is an amazing opportunity to have a taste of acting on a professional stage. As soon as my first year there was over, I knew I'd want to keep returning. All the learning aside, it's also a friendly environment where everyone feels comfortable. I've made some incredible friends that are still returning to camp with me to this day. All in all, FPAS is an educational but fun experience that every new (or returning) actor/actress should try.
Jennifer, Today was wonderful!! Thank you again for all you’ve done to promote such a safe and inclusive environment for Chris to explore his love of performing! We see such growth in his confidence on stage. He truly loves his time with you and he’s learning so much!!! Thank you!Parent
FPAS helps develop self-confidence in our child, in addition to singing, dancing and acting skills. Moreover, the quality of the production that was presented after just 3 weeks is impressive! My daughter loves the programs and camps of FPAS!Parent
FPAS is amazing! My 8 year old daughter began taking classes last September and ended up continuing the whole year, we loved it so much. Jennifer is wonderful...her kind, gentle way put my daughter at ease immediately and it was incredible to see her confidence grow. From each class to each performance...she could not wait to go each week. When I asked her what her favorite part was her response was "All of it!" It has been a very special experience for her and we look forward to beginning again in September!Parent
My daughter has attended the summer camp at FAIRFIELD PERFORMING ARTS STUDIO for the past three years and absolutely loves it!! She says it's the ONLY camp she ever wants to attend. The smile on her face each day when I pick her up is priceless. She always makes such wonderful friends and gains so much confidence. Most of all, to see the end result of all their hard works is amazing!! The show they put together in just THREE weeks blows me away every time. Jen really makes the kids fall in love with theatre.Parent
We've been involved with Jen Kenny and her great staff at FPAS for years. This program is an outstanding mix of fun and skills-building. The growth of the young performers under Jen's direction shows the high level instruction they're receiving. Highly recommended.
