STARS OF TOMORROW
171 Eileen Way, Syosset
"Stars of Tomorrow" was chosen for a very specific reason. Success doesn't happen overnight. It takes hard work, discipline, and confidence. Students work with top instructors and are challenged. Classes are limited in size. Our students are prepared for auditions and our focus is on work and coaching, not costumes and glitzy productions. All shows are open classrooms in which every student is featured. Students are required to attend classes in a uniform shirt. This has been proven effective in eliminating competition and puts everyone on an even playing field especially when meeting industry professionals.
