Toledo’s got talent

. September 5, 2012.

Some kids just seem to arrive on the planet clambering for that big break – in acting, singing, or striking a pose. Starbound helped Katie Holmes and Alyson Stoner achieve their performing dreams, and wants to help your young star do the same. Recently relocated from Toledo to Sylvania, the company’s new studio features two classrooms where tomorrow’s talent can hone their skills. 9-week acting and modeling workshops and private sessions in singing and performance are available.

Starbound’s mission is to provide the training that helps young performers succeed in the competitive worlds of acting, music, and modeling, while also offering  access to top agents and managers. Newly licensed as a publishing company, Starbound can now welcome songwriters as well. An expanded staff allows for optimized representation up to the national level.

Justin Shivak, company director, advises performing arts kids to “study your passion. Read books, talk to professionals, and get involved any way you can: school plays, drama class, theatre, workshops, camps, etc. Most importantly, follow your dream and PRACTICE on a daily basis!!”

Actors, models, dancers, singers, and/or songwriters age 4 or older interested in starting a career or receiving a free evaluation of their talents can attend an audition/evaluation, which are regularly held  two to three times a month. Children of all skill levels are welcome to attend.
