Once Upon A Time.....

As most fairy tales begin, there was a little girl with a dream.  From the moment LISA CARLSON started singing and dancing in her hometown of Manahawkin, NJ, she knew that one day, she wanted to open a performing arts studio as a way to give back to her community.

A dream in the works for over 10 years, Starlight Performing Arts continues to grow and thrive.  We are pleased to provide high quality professional training, similar to what is offered in NYC or LA, in beautiful southern New Jersey.

Our instructors all have college degrees or professional certificates in Theatre, Music, Dance, or Music Education.  Each have professional performing credits ranging from National Tours, Regional credits, and even huge venues like Radio City Music Hall!

Please explore our website and view the wide variety of training and opportunities Starlight has to offer.  From private lessons (in person or via skype) to wonderful group classes, we shoot for the stars and celebrate success at every turn!  When you enroll here, you're not just joining a studio--you're joining a family. Our instructors are dedicated not only to the professional training of our students, but to providing emotional support and guidance throughout their lifetime.  Whether young or young at heart, we promise Starlight PAC is the place you've been hoping for!

If you have a question regarding anything you read or see here, or simply wish to get in touch with us, please contact us today!  We want to hear from you!

With Love and Gratitude,

Lisa Carlson and the Starlight Team
