a shared experience
Zachary Rothman-Hicks, English and Special Education Teacher, HPHS:
"It would be the understatement of the year if I said that I was pleased with how your work is going with my classes. I am beyond thrilled, excited and completely overjoyed by the positive impact you are having on my students. As a special education teacher working in an inclusive setting, I come into contact with a very wide range of students. Kids Creative Collective gives all of these students a shared experience by learning about and discussing literature by experiencing it. You teach my students how to express themselves creatively, that it is all right to communicate, to be human - that in a rough, bustling and hectic city like New York it is ok to reach out and touch someone."
Shaquille B., Summer Acting Intensive, 2013:
"KCC is a great and wonderful place to hone your acting skills, Stacey and Jeremy are great teachers who do a good job of challenging you as an actor. The atmosphere in a KCC workshop is incredible, it will be constant support from the coaches to the students in the class. I would recommend KCC for any aspiring young or old actors, I myself cannot wait to go back because Stacey & Jeremy have showed me how much I LOVE acting and have opened my eyes to the potential I have as an aspiring actor."
Laura O., Student, High School for Health Professions and Human Services, 2017:
"You've inspired me so much in realizing my potential and how fun acting is. Thank you for always bringing joy to class and giving your undivided attention."
Michael D., Summer Acting Intensive, 2018:
Your class was honestly life-changing; I had never imagined that I would enjoy this kind of study as much as I did. Stacey and Jeremy are amazing acting teachers, dispelling confusion with a word and instilling a resounding passion in the students of my class.
A safe environment
Tiffany T., Summer Acting Intensive, 2015
"My experience with Kids Creative Collective was not only fun and exciting, but also very insightful. Stacey and Jeremy have a keen awareness on how one can improve their character authenticity, were very resourceful and created a safe environment. I look forward to working with Kids Collective in the near future. Thank you for everything."
Paola S., Student, High School for Health Professions and Human Services, 2014
"I really like acting every Tuesday morning with Stacey and Jeremy - it takes my sleep away. You also made me more courageous on stage - I used to be kind of shy, but not anymore. You should be proud!"
