Juliana Simone Young Cosette in the National Broadway Tour of Les Miserables "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 and haven’t worked with her in 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." - Juliana Simone Carrasco

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!" - Paige Sklar
Julia Poms Singer/Dancer/Performer "My daughter has been taking singing, dancing and performance classes with Rising Starz Music Academy since she was 5 years old (currently 9 years old). She has absolutely had the best experience! The owner/teacher Vanessa Valentin is amazing and has taught my daughter so much beyond the classroom! I have watched her grow exponentially through the years not only as a performer but as a person. I am so thankful to all the teachers. We are extremely lucky to be a part of the Rising Starz family and I highly recommend to anyone looking for a positive experience!"- Krista Poms
