Phoenix’s Rising Star Academy provides a quality performing arts education for ages 6 to 96!. We believe in the transformational power of performance and aim to deliver a wealth of experiences that foster confidence, collaboration, creativity and connection. The Rising Star Academy builds the essential skills that help people to tap into their star qualities whether on-stage, in school, on the job, or just dancing through life.
The Rising Star Academy offers a well-rounded creative home for youth with a curriculum aligned with the National and State Core Arts Educational Standard in the belief that young performers should be exposed to:
An understanding of the important role of theatre, dance and music in society
Solid technical training in theatrical production and performance skills
A wide range of performing opportunities to showcase their unfolding talents
A basic knowledge and appreciation of technical stage production
This curriculum strives to prepare the student for pre-professional and college level training. This curriculum will be infused into classes, camps, workshops, and student productions. Our educational philosophy also requires that teachers create a safe space within which to learn, risk and grow whether a beginner or advanced student. From the golden age of Broadway to the cutting edge musicals of today, our students and future performers will learn to appreciate a rich landscape of performing arts and develop a life-long passion for musical theatre and its component art forms.
