Yashim Studios is a dance, dramatic arts, and vocal music performance group that focuses on providing a musical theater experience to young people in the metro Washington, DC area. Enrolling students who range in age from 5 to 18, Yashim Studios offers a positive, creative outlet for youth to develop skills that will lead to future career success. Yashim Studios was founded by Nova, who serves as the President, Director, Choreographer, Vocal Director.
Yashim Studios cites as its mission “to create an avenue for young people to find, express, and nurture themselves in the performing arts.” Yashim Studios strives to meet each young performer where they are skill wise and then, move them beyond even what they believe they can do. In this way, Yashim Studios not only delivers technical, professional instruction in the art of musical theater, but also develops a love of things cultural and enhances self-esteem that will span throughout the lifetime of the performers. Yashim Studios encourages performers to pursue advanced studies, which may lead to a career in theater, music or dance. Critical to this experience is exposing young people to all aspects of the performing arts and musicals.
