Why Dance for Kids?
Dance helps children develop emotionally, socially and cognitively, and the dedication, discipline and focus children must learn and practice are important life skills that will transfer over to school, work and other aspects of their lives. Engaging with music and dance allows children to grow in their motor skills, communication, expression, creativity and imagination, social emotional skills, and so much more. The most key developmental years in a child's life happen before they are 5 years old.


SHOWBIZ KIDZ coming this fall to The Fay School and The AWTY International School! We are so excited. Contemplating bringing a Brick and Mortar location soon! Stay tuned!

Our Drama/Acting Classes can include dramatic play, story enactment, imagination journeys, improvisation, theatre games, music, and dance. “Let’s pretend” is the norm in creative drama class, not just a child’s game. Because the emphasis in creative drama is process rather than product, drama classes have the freedom to take as much time as need. Speech and Drama is also about communication, confidence, skill, talent and creativity.

The Importance of Confidence, it’s ability to make you face life’s challenges with assurance and the ease it gives you in yourself is a primary benefit of Toddlers and older children’s acting and drama classes. When you get your child involved in acting classes, they will, over time, develop confidence and courage to fully participate, or even excel in other areas of their life. Drama classes for toddlers push the boundaries of personal comfort, showing children that they are capable of overcoming the most intimidating of obstacles. You may see your child transform from a quiet, timid individual to someone who is bold and ready to take on the world’s challenges. Drama classes for toddlers are a great way to get your child out of their comfort zone and show them that they are capable of doing anything the want with their lives. This takes time and that must be remembered. As with all the benefits of doing something worthwhile it takes commitment, time and dedication.


Lots of activity this week with schools beginning to open back up! Keep your eyes on our FB and we will post our schedules soon! Can’t wait to be back in drama classes!


Thanks so much to all of you who have been so patient during Covid. When we started up our classes early in the new year, we were lucky to have such a positive response. Then the shut down hit in March. I’m truly touched by all the overwhelming responses and Private Messages. I’ve been in meeting all week with various private schools across the greater Houston area, Florida, Nevada and California! We hope to have some great news to announce along with our fall schedule. Stay Tuned for updates! If you haven’t already downloaded Whats App, please do so as it is my preferred method of communication. More info soon!! Spread the word to your fellow Show Biz Kidz Performers!


With an emphasis on language development, our PreK drama program helps to develop important life skills for pre-preschoolers, such as taking turns, sharing, listening, following instructions, sequencing and memory skills and vocalising emotions.

Children participate in a wide variety of activities in each drama lesson, which are carefully devised to captivate the children’s interests and stimulate their learning. The curriculum is designed to appeal to children from 3 years before they start ‘big’ school! The weekly lessons, which include:

Dramatic play
Creative movement
Language development
Songs & rhymes

The pre-school drama program includes different themes which the children can easily identify with and relate to, throughout the the term.


Most Leaders in society exhibit confidence, self belief, and the ability to project their voice so their views can be heard. Respect for others, an understanding of self worth and a resilient nature are necessary qualities in today’s world. Drama class use of a structured drama environment promotes the developments of these qualities in students. Developing these skills takes practice- just like soccer or ballet. Developing these skills will not only help your child during the school years, but will follow them throughout their lives.


Dramatic Play. Creative movement. Language development. Story telling. Songs and Rhymes. What not to love in a ShowBiz Kidz Class? Nothing!
