Testimonials

See what our students and parents have to say

  • My nine-year old daughter is a HUGE fan of Jennifer's drama program! She has learned so much about what goes into the production of a show, even on a small scale and she has enjoyed the process - from script introduction to the "final curtain" - immensely.  Jennifer makes learning fun and the kids take so much pride in the finished product... you can see it in their faces as they take their final bows. After multiple sessions in Jennifer's winter and spring classes, my daughter is now REALLY excited for the three-week summer camp program!

  • My daughter has done classes with Jennifer and Fairfield Performing Arts for 3 years now and she always enjoys class and is sad when a session is over.  Jennifer has such a way with the children and they all blossom under her tutelage!  It is such a fun, low pressure but high learning environment, Jennifer has the formula down!  All of the children are so happy to be in that room for the hour!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!!

  • If you asked me nine months ago, "do you think that acting will help your shyness?" I would say that you’re crazy!  But it turns out that I was completely wrong and that taking these acting classes not only helped with my shyness but my confidence and creativity as well.  That is all thanks to Jennifer and FPAS!!
