DramaZone® 's Rising Star Search
As for our instructors we search for teachers with experience in more than one discipline as well as having exceptional experience in their chosen field. Many are fully unionized in SAG, AFTRA, and AEA and many have Teacher Certification. We have many teachers and entertainers with Broadway and International credits and we seek a special person who can teach without losing the "fun" in the class. These instructors often are multi talented and many are exceptional with preschoolers having developed our Preschooler Speciality Department in a variety of disciplines from ARTS TO SPORTS. We have Rockettes who teach tap and ballet, and Art Teachers who are working actors who have done set design. We take pride in finding the right match for each school and all teachers must commit to our teacher training program which cover NY State Guidelines. We have won our place at some of NYC's finest private and public schools and afterschools and hope for the continued honor to work with all of our students.
Teacher Training for DramaZone Placement and Teacher Training Seminars for Out of State Placement.
In addition to our teachers who are trained for the purpose of placement here in NYC, we train and offer our DramaZone Certification for off premise teachers and out of state teachers. Training sessions are done in groups with a minimum of 5 participants from your school. Teachers should expect to bring in their classroom curriculum for a total of one month and one week lesson plans to be analyzed and manipulated in order to provide optimal presentation and effectiveness. Intensives run on Sat. and Sun on training weekends with a 1hr lunch break. See our Teacher Training Page for further information.
During these sessions teachers will learn:
*How to set goal structured curriculum for all types of
curriculum through sensory work.

Interview Coaching and Kindergarten Admission Prep
For Professional training join us in our Rising Star Classes or Audition Only Classes/ showcases.
Do you have a child entering Kindergarten? Don't take your child's preparation for the ERB or his interview for granted. We provide both ERB Tutoring and INTERVIEW Preparation. There are only a handfull of seats available to fill in each private school. Students who have undergone preparation work with us are taught ways to bring out your child's strongest skills and see your child in his or her best light. Our students have a 90% acceptance rate. Give your child the edge he or she needs to compete for a place in New York's finest schools. Our Interview Preparation and coaching give young children entering Kindergarten the preparation your child needs to make the most positive first impression. Your child will work with our Artistic Director one on one. Preparation works upon children's strengths in a healthy confidence building progression. Your child will work with our Director who has experience knowing what works and what could hurt your child's chances. Nothing artificial is expected, no lines rehearsed. Only strength building exercises that cover the material catagorically displayed in the ERBs. We work to relax your child so only his or her strengths are displayed. Some private schools request that you do not send your child for tutoring. That would be like saying, "Don't send your child for tutoring on the SAT". Our finely tuned sessions cover the material in a safe, healthy environment so that the types of questions your child may be asked he or she may be familiar with and more readily able to answer than a child who has not heard of the material or is overwhelmed by his or her environment.
Preparation is by appointment only and subject to availability. Please contact us by phone: 917-690-0789.
