We have a new and very exciting program at EJS School of Fine Arts called...BRIGHT STAR!
So many children of Surrey, due to financial need, will never be exposed or have the opportunity to receive training in the theatre arts and all the benefits associated with exposure to the Arts. This project will make sure kids are given an opportunity that they would otherwise not receive. Our program is open to kids of all ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds. Exposure to the arts in this forum not only gives students training in acting, singing, dancing and visual arts but the classes themselves have a profound effect in the building self esteem, self confidence, self discipline and give the students and strong sense of self worth. This program is about building kids up through the arts and giving them a creative outlet to inspire and create a positive influence in their lives and in the community.
BRIGHT STAR is designed to give disadvantaged children between the ages of 5-17 years the opportunity to participate in musical theatre, visual arts and dance classes. Students have the opportunity perform in a full stage, musical theatre production. These classes are unique to our school. Students receive 2 hours of training in three separate theatre disciplines (acting, singing & dancing) or 1 hour of visual arts or dance training on a weekly basis. A production performance is held at a Surrey theatre at the end of each term providing an opportunity for them to showcase their accomplishments.
Applications are available April 1st of each year. Applications must include paperwork to verify financial need. Also, a letter of recommendation from supporting professional source that can verfiy and support this application.
