Park Slope Performing Arts has been a vital part of our daughter’s development and enrichment. The support and encouragement she has received is unmatched. PSPA provides a nurturing and family like atmosphere in which young performers blossom. PSPA is our daughter’s second home and we feel blessed to have found this neighborhood jewel.
Our daughter has taken two different ballet classes with PSPA for several years and has really developed a great foundation of ballet, and excitement to learn more and perfect her techniques. The studio offers an extra “ballet academy” for kids who take a special interest in ballet and it is a wonderful opportunity for them to concentrate on technique.
PSPA has given our daughter the chance to try different forms of dance and attend some very cool camps. The teachers are fantastic and really care about the kids. They have created a place where the kids feel safe and eager to express their creativity. They offer a wide variety of dance and performing arts classes, and make it easy and affordable for kids to take multiple classes.
My daughter was very shy and nervous when she first started taking dance at Park Slope Performing Arts in kindergarten. The teachers at PSPA were so kind and encouraging to her. Through their support and expert guidance, she has blossomed into a 2nd grader who loves to perform! She played Frieda in the PSYTC production of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown they did last winter (which was amazingly good! I was blown away that they managed to produce a full-length play with all 5- to 8-year-olds), and recently got the part of the Wicked Witch of the West in their new production of The Wizard of Oz.
PSPA offers young budding a actors a chance to learn and perform in a way that I did not think was possible at such a young age. They take care to create fair opportunity for all, and encourage independence and creativity.
