"It is very difficult to locate top notch teachers locally that have the skills and experience to foster professional career growth. The teachers from Rising Starz have a strong commitment to strengthen and develop triple threat talents so that they are prepared and stand out. Rising Starz focuses on critical audition elements. They assist with crucial monologue and song selections, interviewing skills, they review resumes and headshots and provide valuable feedback with recommendations. If you want your child to have the confidence to compete in the highly competitive world of the arts, then Rising Starz is a must. Our daughter is now able to successfully compete and give a strong presentation of her talents. She is often complimented on the high caliber of her professionalism and vocal ability. This is all due to the training she has received at Rising Starz. Because of Rising Starz, she now flourishes".- Brenda Fam

It’s incredible to see the transformation my son has undertaken since signing up at Rising Starz! Where once he was a self-conscious little boy, he is now realizing his potential in singing and acting while boosting his self-esteem in the interim. Vanessa and her team are true experts at inspiring young talent, fostering a creative environment, and encouraging young performers to develop skills necessary to maximize their potential. I recommend Rising Starz to any parent who wants to see their child grow under the tutelage of caring and loving teachers.

Mrs. Vanessa and Rising Starz have been the most instrumental for my son Alex's growth in the performance arena! Vanessa was the first person to identify that my son had some talent and he was only just 3 years old! She convinced me to encourage him and he has now performed in countless productions all around South Florida, he was awarded a full scholarship to American Heritage H.S in Plantation and a music scholarship at Columbia University. She can really zero in on hidden talents and has the patience and perseverance to draw it out in children, a skill few have, and her instincts are second to none. Alex has attended many other acting studios throughout FL and NY, but Rising Starz is the one place we always return to. The personal care and attention we receive are INVALUABLE! Alex has also worked with many of the other teachers at Rising Starz and all of them have been instrumental in moving Alex to a new level with his acting, singing, comedic timing and accents. I cannot recommend Rising Starz enough!

"I met Mrs. Vanessa and liked her right away. She is so much fun and always enthusiastic. She helped me tremendously with learning how to breathe properly, vocal technique, and also how to be a better performer. Even when I’ve been away for a while, when I return, she always greets me with a huge smile and everyone at Rising Starz always makes me feel like I am at home."

The quality of my training there helped me to surpass even my own goals and expectations and I could not have asked for a better learning experience. In addition to my training I enjoyed every moment of my time at there. I would highly recommend investing in Rising Starz to anyone because they for sure will invest in you. Thank you Rising Starz!"
"I can’t even begin to explain how amazing Rising Starz is! My daughter has been involved with musical theatre and voice lessons for 3 years, upon my search for a“new Place” I came across Rising Starz, I schedule a private lesson at first just to get a feel as she was preparing for District Competition, we were introduced to Patrick and after the first lesson we were sold! The growth she has shown in just 4 short months is amazing! He is the perfect coach and teacher for her and I’m beyond impressed each week! Looks like we found a new home!" - Tessa Haskins-Santillan
