Acting Academy for Kids sets itself apart from other studios and performing arts programs in several ways. Founders Stephen & Maggie Zygo both hold Masters' Degrees in teaching and they bring onto the AA4K team instructors who possess two distinct qualifications:
PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR & PERFORMING ARTIST
AA4K teachers are typically both professional educators as well as professional performing artists. Since our staff's central purpose is to educate your son or daughter, we bring on the best teachers in town, not just the best performers. Teaching is a craft and talent that requires education and experience. That is why our teachers are actually real teachers (most hold valid CA teaching credentials). Because of our staff's dynamic backgrounds in the arts and their dual areas of expertise, they are able to equip students with the tools they need to succeed in the performing arts.
AA4K programs are held at a genuine Playhouse, with performances taking place on the theatre's mainstage with professional lights, sound, seating, and costumes. In addition to a real theatre experience, our Playhouse is located in the historical district of SJC connected to one of the most beautiful parks in the county complete with an outdoor stage, the Historical Town Center Park.
AA4K's unique school programs will always be held within a school auditorium able to fully function as a real theatre.

Whether your school is looking to host a full-scale musical or perform a Shakespearean play, AA4K can help you achieve your performing arts educational goals. We will partner with your school and execute a program to meet your needs. Fundraising is a huge part of any school's goals. We helped one organization raise $6,000 in one weekend! Why not let yours be next! AA4K can also provide CA credentialed drama teachers with either our own curriculum or a curriculum that is specifically tailored to meet your school's needs. Administrators: Why go through the headache of hiring part time teachers when you can easily contract one of our dynamic educators to enrich your students' lives with the performing arts?

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT AA4K?
Acting Academy for Kids helped transform our son from a shy athlete into a confident stage performer. It’s a delight to see him willingly hang up his cleats one day per week to participate in the arts. I highly recommend this theater program (and individual lessons if desired) for children of all ages and interests.
