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
I have been going to the FPAS summer camp since it began, and every year I get even more excited to go! I've really learned to be myself there by bonding with so many amazing people. This camp is where I first fell in love with acting, singing, dancing, and where I get to strengthen my skills by being challenged with some of the best counselors and the best cast mates. It truly is a great summer and life experience, I gained many friendships, supporters, and mentors through this camp. Thank you Jen and all the counselors for everything you've done for me!!Studebt
When my daughter booked her first Lead in a Feature Film, we did private lessons with Jennifer and she really helped Lindsey prepare for her role. Her schedule was flexible, she was patient and enthusiastic and even patiently answered all of my questions! Everyone on set was so impressed with how prepared Lindsey was for someone so young, and that is in great part thanks to Jennifer. We came back again for private lessons to prepare for a Broadway audition, and I can’t say enough good things about Jennifer and Fairfield Performing Arts!Parent
My children have participated in FPAS camps and classes for over five years and have grown tremendously due to the passionate, thoughtful, and creative instruction, the dedication and encouragement of the teachers, and the warm and inviting atmosphere as well as the strong friendships they have made. The experience has been exceptional on so many levels -- like no other!
Fairfield Performing Arts is such an amazing camp. It really helps me to step out of my comfort zone when acting, dancing, or singing. I love learning about the process of doing a play through games and other fun activities. I always look forward to coming back months before the summer even starts!Student (age 12)
