Elefante Performing Arts students (pictured above) are starring on Broadway (“School of Rock”, TWO students in “Waitress”), in National Tours (“Les Miserables”, TWO students in “Kinky Boots”), in Netflix series (“Gypsy”, “Alex Strangelove”), in music videos with pop recording artists (Jason Mraz’s “Have it All”), in commercials, on cruise ships, in top NYC cabaret venues, on professional regional stages, in community theaters, and in their school shows at elementary, middle, high schools, and top colleges. Most importantly, they’ve developed poise, confidence, and communication skills that will last their whole lives long.

We provide our young performing artists with first-rate instruction by professional, working artists. Our teachers understand the importance of finding the storyteller in each and every performer, and providing them with practical tools and techniques to communicate clearly and honestly with the audience.

Elefante offers year-round instruction in the performing arts. During the school year, we hold both fall and spring semesters of classes covering all aspects of performance (acting, singing, and dance) for ages 3 through 18. In the summer, our amazing performing arts camps are among the most popular (and the most FUN) in New Jersey.

An Elefante education in the performing arts unlocks the door to a child’s imagination. Once they step through that door, they can go anywhere.
