Today we’d like to introduce you to Latesha Page.
Latesha, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am a single mother born and raised in New York City. As my daughter got older, I felt like her Communications skills were lacking. It was hard for her to speak publicly, speak to new people and express herself comfortably. I thought back to what me so comfortable in front of others and where did I get my confidence from. It hit my Drama Class. I started acting very young. It was my outlet. I started to look for children acting classes in the city, but I could not find the one like the one I attended as a child. So I decided to create my own. That was the beginning of New York Star Club a Kids Acting School in New York City.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I have been in business for a little over a year and it has been a smooth road.
Please tell us about New York Star Club.
New York Star Club is an Acting School based out of New York City designed for children ages five and up. We, as theatre artists, believe that acting is a great way to teach children valuable life skills, while simultaneously encouraging them to follow their dreams. Our mission is to build your child’s confidence and communication skills while encouraging authenticity: How can your child become the best version of themselves that they can possibly be? We want children to be prepared for their next step in life, whether it is into an audition room, into a job interview, or just to make friends for life! We are known for creating commercials for local businesses. I am most proud of our commercial for Shinning Star Hair Salon. We are different because we focus on each child’s needs and goals.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite memory as a child was being able to perform in a Theater Company all around New York City. It is truly the beginning where everything started for me.
