Acting Academy for Kids

Acting Academy for Kids (AA4K) provides kids and teens a way to experience the performing arts in a fun and engaging way led by professionally trained educators in their respective fields. As credentialed and professional educators with Master's Degrees in Education, the founders, Stephen & Maggie Zygo, envisioned a dynamic learning environment where families could bring their kids to make new friends, grow new skills, and walk away with a new sense of confidence. Over the past ten years, Acting Academy for Kids has done just that! With over 15,000 Orange County students that have made AA4K their home to grow as performing artists, founders Stephen & Maggie are beyond grateful for their amazing team of leaders, generous families and inspiring students!
