The mission of Shining Studios is to provide both aspiring students and performers alike with instruction in theatre, music, and dance, empowering them to develop their craft, express themselves creatively, and grow as artists.
Our staff is more than just passionate; they are committed. Not only are our Shining Studios instructors certified teachers, but they are experienced performers, directors, and or musicians, and active members of the Long Island/New York theatre community. They are committed to their craft and more importantly they are committed to their students. Shining Studios prides itself on employing individuals who consistently strive to go above and beyond for each and every student.
We understand that communication is key for every relationship. Constant communication with our parents is essential to Shining Studios, to ensure that students and their families are all on the same page at all times. Each Shining class has a specific Group Me Chat (https://groupme.com) that instructors will assist parents in setting up on the first day of class. This is a digital forum, easily accessible by mobile devices, for parents to ask questions, teachers to spread information, and updates to be shared back and forth.
What separates Shining Studios from its competitors is our constant push to defy the limits. Our students are encouraged to express themselves creatively in whatever capacity they so choose. Our staff works very hard to incorporate the many different talents of our students into productions, performances, and daily lessons. We offer our students and cast members a unique perspective into theatre and pride ourselves on producing shows that break the boundaries.
