KIDS MAKING MOVIES! Acting & Filmmaking classes AFTER SCHOOL for ages 5 to 17 years. Students learn both in front and behind the camera's, from writing, directing, to starring in their own movies. We show case student films at the historical River Oaks Theater at the Joy Kids Red Carpet Premiere. The program builds confidence, creativity and self-expression.
Limited spots available. We offer small classes.
Classes are taught by actress, producer, director, Joy Saxton. Joy has worked with kids appearing on Broadway, in major motion pictures, and on television. Students have signed with talent agencies in Texas and Los Angeles.
We also offer private acting lessons for the serious actor, Girl Scouts Workshops and Birthday Parties!
Our studio is located in West University in Houston, Texas, named in Forbes Magazine as one of America's 15 best neighborhoods in America. The Joy Kids Studio is equipped with a Green Screen, costumes and filming equipment for the students to use.

you, Joy, for your continuous support with Sebastian! You and your
classes were instrumental with his success in securing an agent. Not
only did his confidence grow with each acting class that he took, but,
his personality grew as well. He became
more outgoing and social in school, took part in class discussions and
for the first time.... made the honor role! I'd have to say that acting
class has added a new level of depth to my son! Thank you with all of my
