discover. create. grow.

Every performer who steps onto the NJPAC stage has one thing in common: arts education made a difference in their lives. That’s why we’re proud to be one of the largest arts education providers in America. At NJPAC, you’ll experience the joy of dance, acting, musical theater, film and hip hop taught by inspiring artists in a warm, supportive environment. Join us!

You get these kids who are so shy and are uncomfortable speaking in front of a large group. The key is to really establish that they are a team – like any sports team, working together.
