  • “When kids sing through an idea, they get to places and develop a skill set beyond what’s taught in the industry. SPACE’s techniques create critical thinkers. They push issues but leave room for people to think for themselves.”

    — Andrew Kricher, Past teacher and former SPACE student

  • “I cannot say enough about the benefits of the SPACE program. The effects on the children who participate in classes, the teachers who offer their services, and the community members who are touched by parenting and other programs SPACE has to offer are far greater than simply singing, dancing and acting for fun.

    — Rachel Young , Parent

  • “SPACE has helped me as much as it has helped my children. The teachers hold the bar very high. As a parent I have learned so much, just by observing how the teachers treat and respect the children.”

  • “Parents often report that after attending SPACE classes their child becomes less shy, more confident, is excited about making new friends, performs better in school or simply wants to sing all the time.”

    — Amanda Rosenberg, Street Dance Teacher
