- Things to Do
Shooting Stars NYC is a competitive dance company devoted to empowering and inspiring young girls through dance and performance. Owner and Director, Kristin Pierce started this company in 2000 as a way to create a safe haven for girls to explore their own unique voices, all while promoting the theme of “girl power.” SSDC nurtures and trained young “Stars” in the realms of dance, movement, and music, and caters to city girls looking to find not only world-class dance training, but a team-oriented atmosphere. The dancers of SSDC have performed at many Halftime shows for the Knicks and Nets, featured in W Magazine and modeled for the likes of Betsey Johnson and performed at hundreds of events over the years, and our “Star” alumni include international superstars of today including Singer/Songwriter Sophie Beem. Shooting Stars NYC not only provides exceptional dance training for competitive dance students, but also holds after-school classes throughout the NYC school systems.
