Starr’s Studio of Dance in Kent has announced its petite and junior companies have been selected to provide the opening number for the upcoming “KIDZ BOP Make Some Noise 2015 Tour” performance in Northampton, Mass.

The performance will be held Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Calvin Theatre.

Starr’s Studio of Dance is an award-winning studio specializing in preparing students for the stage and screen.

Dance company members who will be featured in the performance include Janine Torre, Shannon Palmer, Samantha Tripler and Brayden Tripler of New Milford, Hannah Richards, Aiyana Miller, Reegan Blore, Kammi Zhang, Sarah Tarala, Katrina Nordland, Audrey Richards and Camryn Woodin of Kent, Mackenzie Shook of Sherman and Ava Gagliardi of Wingdale, N.Y.

“KIDZ BOP” is the No. 1 music brand for kids.

The live tour features family-friendly versions of today’s biggest music hits performed by Billboard’s “#1 Kids’ Artist” The KIDZ BOP Kids.

The Massachusetts performance comes on the heels of performances by the dance studio’s members on Walt Disney World’s Main Street and on the hit CBS television series “Madam Secretary.”

“These are the opportunities that we train our students for,” said Starr Jeffreys, dance studio owner and dancer and actress.

“We work very hard to create employable dancers,” she said. “The skills, resources, visibility and professional networking opportunities that our program provides empower and equip our dancers to have successful careers in the fine arts if that’s the path they choose.”

First launched in 2012, Starr’s Studio of Dance offers training in a variety of styles, including ballet, hip-hop, tap, jazz, Irish and lyrical acrobatics for young dancers ages 2 and up.
