Kids Making Movies! Acting & Movie Making classes AFTER SCHOOL for ages 7 to 12 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, media literacy skills and self-expression.
We also offer Acting Classes, Summer Camps, 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. Our Studio is equipped with Green Screen wall, costumes and high quality filming equipment for the students to use.
The Joy Kids Red Carpet Premiere
"Thank 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 heart."

"When we treat children's play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping them feel the joy that's to be found in the creative spirit."
