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!Parent
I've spent my last 4 summers at Fairfield Performing Arts Studio's summer camp. Over time, I have learned so much about myself not only as a performer, but also as a person. With the guidance of Jen and her team of amazing counselors, I've gained a great deal of self-confidence. With this, I have honed my skills as an actor, singer, and dancer. In the process I have also made some of my closest friends who have supported me along the way. I would highly recommend FPAS to any young, aspiring actor/actress who is looking for a fun, nurturing environment in which they can perfect their craft. I credit the camp for helping me discover my true passion, and I can't wait for this summer!Student
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!
We have looked and looked for the best acting programs around. This one hit the mark! Caroline loves her acting class, and it has been a treat for everyone! We are definitely signing up for the next sessions. Every child in our class returned – that says it all!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!
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
