Walking into Fairfield Performing Arts Studio summer camp every June is a moment I look forward to all year. Jennifer's lessons in acting, singing and dancing not only made me a well- rounded performer with skills in every aspect of musical theatre, but also allowed me to grow as a person and meet many lifelong friends. Jen's trust in me with many difficult roles and her guidance in helping me execute them while still creating a wonderful camp experience and has made my three years at her summer camp an unforgettable experience!Student
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
Hello Jennifer, I really like your acting class, and although I forgot my lines once and improvised, it is all around awesome. What I like most about your class is that you motivate us (along with your assistants) as hard as you can. And also I like that if we dislike our parts (like I didn’t want to be Mr. Smee), you always find a way to help us believe in ourselves and like the part. I also like the emotion games because it’s fun and it teaches me how to express myself on stage.3rd grade student
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
My son absolutely loves going to acting class at Fairfield Performing Arts Studio. Being his first real experience on “stage,” Jennifer helped him gain the confidence to perform all types of characters and emotions. Owen has made several new friends at FPAS from across the Fairfield elementary schools that all share common interests. As a parent, I love that he is learning to work together as a team and support each other to put together a performance in just a few short weeks. He can’t wait for summer camp and looks forward to many more memories and performances with FPAS!Parent
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
