Performing arts is a natural addition to our athletic performance programs. Our program is spearheaded by producer, teaching artist and NYAS Founder, Katy Cocovinis, along with her husband, Jason Cocovinis who by day, the Director of Marketing at Music Theatre International - the world's largest licensing house of Broadway Musicals.
Our P.O.P.S. Team (Professional Opportunities for Performance Students) is comprised of students ages 6-16 who are passionate about singing, dancing and/or acting. We also welcome our cheer performers who help add the incredible visual elements of stunts and gymnastics to make our productions uniquely spectacular.
Members of our P.O.P.S. team range from beginner to professional actors. Our performers have been seen in local commercials, appeared at the Barclay's Center, on stage at Radio City Music Hall and more. Last summer, we had the exclusive opportunity to pilot a production of Disney's FROZEN Kids - an adaptation for student performers.
This Spring, our team will present Disney's the Little Mermaid Jr. Select performers will represent NYAS at the Starbound National Talent Competition.
Beginning at age 2.5, students may join our Pre-K Prep Program. This is a 3 day per week, drop-off, morning program offering a fitness and arts based preschool curriculum, lead by our renouned Early Childhood Consultant, Dr. Nnenna Franciamore.
Additionally, we offer Tiny Stars Tumble and Cheer programs for students ages 3-5.
Students must be fully potty trained and able to participate without a parent or caregiver.
TUMBLE AND CHEER
Our Tumble and Cheer Program is the longest running and most popular of our offerings. Our cheerleading program is unique in that in encompasses all areas of the sport - including promoting community spirit, cheerleading at charitable events and attending competitive events.
Our cheerleaders have been nationally ranked and compete around the tri-state area. Most recently, they were invited to perform with the Jets Flight Crew Cheerleaders at Citifield for the Mets annual cheer and dance night.
