"There’s a diversity of changing themes and activities... With its intimate scale, the kids get a beautiful personal touch you’d never find at a more commercial enterprise."
"The performance had a charm, an identity, an old-fashioned, hard working approach to theater involving kids that is rare now... The whole thing left the viewer with a reverence for childhood, and all of its potential."
"My children have benefitted tremendously from their experiences at BAL. It is a serious learning environment where students have a lot of fun and work together in a collaborative and respectful environment."
"I just think Brooklyn Acting Lab has been the best acting experience I have ever had in my life. And the people here are really awesome... I have made so many friends here that I will know for life."
"Brooklyn Acting Lab helped our daughter become an astronaut, robot, an ancient goddess, a monkey-singer, designer, a comedian, and an all around flexible, collaborative, brave and honest part of a team. All of that is cool, but what I love the most is that it helped her find and love her own voice."
"My daughter has found her voice, a new passion and a community of young artists that she now calls friends."
"This was my son's first experience at a theater camp and we couldn't have asked for a better program. The teachers were amazing and both challenged and nurtured my son while teaching him dancing, singing and acting as well running a full scale musical production. The play itself was very impressive and they definitely knew how to maximize the talent and potential of all of the kids. This camp has definitely created a true love of theater in my child and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get more comfortable on stage or enhance their theater skills."
"I am blown away by the increases in my daughter’s confidence and stage presence."
"The teaching staff is truly amazing and they create a safe and encouraging environment to allow children to grow and perform and have fun."
"These are great child-centered, imagination-driven, creative and serious theater classes."
"I was so impressed with how they nailed the issues kids face and offered a solution in the most upbeat positive way possible, through song and dance!"
"Right off the bat, we could tell our coach was highly experienced in working with kids, incredibly professional, warm and congenial, helping our kid to hone technique and deliver the best possible performance with focused attention."
"The directors and staff are all warm, smart and engaging, bringing their own professional training and expertise to the kids."
“They really center around the kids' ideas and imagination and let them lead the way. It's very empowering AND fun. I highly recommend it. Our daughter went there for a few weeks last summer and has done several of their "play in a day" mini camps and will be heading back this summer. They are small so the kids get a lot of love and attention.”
