 2/12/14   5     5     5     5     5   For 4 consecutive years now, we travel from Florida to NYC to give our children the experience of a lifetime by attending this camp. It is by far, one of the best things my children have been exposed to. They have learned much more than singing and dancing. They learn to work hard, with a team, and how to play their part in something bigger than themselves. Their knowledge of plays, music, lyrics, etc. far exceed those of other children their age. They learn to perform on stage, and it has given them a confidence that carries into the rest of their school year. Robert is a wonderful director, and his hand picked staff is amazing year after year. They are warm and caring, yet professional, and give the kids a positive experience of being in a professional performance. At the end of four weeks, we are always amazed with a show that is nothing less than spectacular, and we watch the DVD's long after the curtains have closed. RID: 46757

 2/2/14   5     5     5     4     5   This camp is amazing! You get to work with so many people in the industry, including those who are currently in Broadway shows. In the end, the show always turns out great despite only having four weeks to put together. Lastly, in those four weeks, you easily get to know the other campers and make lasting friendships.

 1/31/14   5     5     5     5     5   My daughter has attended several acting/ dancing programs over the past 5 years and Theatre Arts Center, is truly the best. The performance they put on at the end of camp, showed me that they were serious about improving her talents. The level of the production was amazing, so impressive I bought several tickets and invited friends from the city. The experience definitely raised my daughters performing a notch. From the first day I could see Roberts passion about his camp. You want to see someone who's serious about theatre, and loves kids, and thats what the staff represented. She had so much fun. The commute from Manhattan was a challenge but well worth it. Highly Recommended!! RID: 46679

 1/30/14   5     5     5     5     5   I went to TAC for four years (until I was a senior in high school) and it was the best four summers of my life. I honestly wish I found out about TAC earlier! I made great connections with Broadway choreographers, learned many different dance, vocal, and acting techniques, and made friends that will last a lifetime. I am so thankful for this program because it didn't only make me a better dancer, actress, and singer, but it also made me a more well-rounded, kind-hearted person. Never have I been treated with such kindness and respect, than at TAC. I still remember my first day; I was extremely shy and didn't know anyone (meanwhile everyone had already known each other from previous years) & by the end of the day, I didn't want to leave. Everyone is so welcoming, and each summer has been an even better experience. I highly recommend TAC for any aspiring Broadway star, or anyone seriously interested in dance, acting, or singing. It was a great experience that has greatly impacted my lif RID: 46678

 1/30/14   5     5     5     5     5   TAC is so much more than a summer camp. Besides the lasting friendships with her co-performers, we found the highly professional staff, Broadway guest artist and choreographers, a wonderful prep for our daughter in her pursuit of a performing arts career. We feel her summers spent at TAC were instrumental in her receiving a coveted spot at a Manhattan performing arts high school. We are so appreciative of Robert and his entire staff for the wonderful work and inspiration they provided all these summers. If you're considering a performing arts summer program that is truly highly professional, has a tremendous stage show for friends and family and a closeness and camaraderie among the performers, this would be the place.

 1/30/14   5     5     5     5     5   My favorite thing about this camp is that the students get to expereince so many different types of music and dance styles with current broadway personalities and professional staff that are in the industry. The costumes and dance numbers are fantastic and the friendships are everlasting. And Robert TRULY cares about every student! RID: 46667

Click to report rating    1/29/14   5     5     5     4     4   Personally, I think that Theatre Arts Center is an amazing place. It was my first year at Theatre Arts Center in summer of 2013 and I felt so comfortable and welcomed as family by the instructors and staff and most importantly the kids who I am glad to call close friends. Theatre Arts Center (TAC). Definitely helped me into becoming a better performer. I have now become more stronger in the field of singing and dance. Mostly singing I have the ability to sing songs and notes I never knew I had. Thanks to the dance instructors and vocal training. Words can't explain how AMAZING TAC is. I can't wait for summer of 2014!The activities here are amazing between the acting classes, the dancing, and the vocal training and the bonding with other kids. When I need help on a dance the dance captains immediately come over and accommodate me and what I need help on. When your paying for the camp every cent is worth it TAC is AMAZING! RID: 46666

 1/29/14   5     4     5     5     5   Can't say enough good things about TAC. My daughter has attended for 4 years. Robert and his crew not only give their expertise and training, they also pass down their love of theater and it shows with the final on stage production. If you want your child to be happy about going to camp, send them to TAC!! RID: 46664

Click to report rating    1/29/14   5     5     5     5     5   This is a professional preparation program for future performing artists, particularly in acting, musical theater, vocals and dance. It is equivalent in nature to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. My daughter will be starting her 6th year at 13 and she adores the regimen, instructors and camaraderie!! Couldn't get a better deal! RID: 46660

She looks forward to it every year and her dance instructors have commented positively on the training she has received on TAC. The staff is professional and yet very approachable and the campers are really challenged. The end of camp production is incredible. We are looking forward to another amazing summer! RID: 46659

Click to report rating    1/29/14   5     5     5     5     4   This camp was an awesome experience for my (at the time) 9 year old son. I found it absolutely amazing how much was done with the children in only a 4 week period. The show in August was awesome and my son cannot wait to register for this coming summer! If you have a child that loves to sing, dance, or act this is the place to be! It is a safe environment and the staff is great! I give them 5 stars! RID: 46657

Click to report rating    1/29/14   5     5     5     5     5   Last year was the first time may daughter attended. BEST experience ever! The staff was very attentive. Robert the Director is very down to earth and makes sure he gets to interact with all the kids. My daughter's skills as a dancer, actor, and vocalist soared in such a short time. Professional, yet nurturing and an unforgettable summer!! She lost any stage fright she has ever had because of her attendance at Camp Theatre Arts Center NYC. Can't wait to audition again this year!

Click to report rating    1/29/14   5     5     5     5     5   This is a no-nonsense theater experience for kids. They work hard but learn a lot from professional theater people and put on a great show every summer. The kids bond with counselors and other campers. Campers return summer after summer, which speaks volumes about how they view the experience. Would recommend this camp without reservation. RID: 46653

Click to report rating    1/29/14   5     5     5     5     4   My daughter Autumn loved TAC!! She has so many great memories from this camp, it was the highlight of her summer. She is now at Fiorello H. LaGuardia HIghschool for Vocal Music. But she's also been casted in an off-broadway show and has made appearances at the Apollo Theater performing. Autumn has also won numerous awards for her work in performing arts and a lot more is coming for her now. A big part is from TAC helping her to hone her craft and become the kind of child performer she is now. We're so happy she went there because it really advanced her to the beginnings of her pro career! The professionals that are there are top notch and fabulous, it's real training. The facilities are gorgeous and perfect for kids wanting to start out in the business. We recommend for evey child who wants to perform to go to TAC! RID: 46652

 6/4/11   5     5     5     5     5   My daughter attended this camp for the first time last summer, and is definitely returning this year and for years to come. She will tell you without hesitation that the month spent here was the best month of her life. She loved working with the different choreographers and song coaches, and Robert Laconi is a master at finding each child's talent/gift and highlighting those qualities. No one is made to feel anything but special. After many mediocre experiences with other camps, I have to say that the TAC experience was nothing but a pleasure. My daughters confidence rose immeasurably, and she made many wonderful friends who she has stayed in touch with throughout the year....they have a countdown calendar that brings her greater joy each day as the start of camp approaches! And frankly, I'm as excited to see her joy and glee as she is to start her summer! RID: 36033

 5/13/11   5     5     5     5     5   This will be my daughter's 3rd summer. It has been well worth it for her to attend. Not only has Robert Laconi and his superior staff helped develop her talents as a performer, they've also helped her grow as a person -- instilling in her the discipline to persevere. This will inable her achieve whatever goals she pursues. The talented and experienced Broadway professionals that Robert brings in every summer, have given my daughter an incredible amount of training in acting, singing, dancing, and performing that would have most assuredly cost far more if this program were not available. Since the classes also take place on a professional University stage, the experience is especially beneficial. Over and above the theatrical training, they have also helped her develop socially. Each and every summer she has bonded with many other like-minded children, and has continued to maintain strong friendships with her peers. Kudos and a rousing standing ovation to the Theatre Arts Center. RID: 35888

 5/13/11   5     5     5     5     5   My daughter absolutely loved her first summer at TAC. She has gained close friends who make her smile and they keep in touch all year long. This is money well spent for her to do what she loves with wonderful kids and staff. Robert, the director is an amazing, sweet man who cares about all his students. My daughter can't wait to return to TAC. RID: 35886

 5/11/11   4     5     5     5     5   My daughter has gone to TAC for the past five summers, and loved it! She made the best friends, had wonderful counsellors, and got to work with great choreographers and performers from current Broadway productions. She performed in in eight or nine numbers in each of two performances at the end of each summer session, and she gained confidence and poise that she never thought she had. The camp is lots of fun, and the kids grow amazingly close over the four weeks -- it was definitely worth the daily trip to Queens from Brooklyn every day! If you think I am exaggerating about what a wonderful experience TAC is, take a look at beaming faces and awesome synchronization in the Chorus Line portion of the clip on TAC's website! My daughter can't wait to go back as a counsellor now that she has aged out of the program! RID: 35869
