Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York's Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the “hip hop” hippo, have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity. Not content, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape, with the help of some prodigious penguins, to explore the world.

Filled with fun costumes, adventure galore, and an upbeat score, Madagascar Jr. will leave audiences and students with no choice but to  “Move It, Move It!” 

Each 4-week workshop (5 days a week) is $385 for new students, $365 for returning students, and $345 for a family (if you enroll more than one child per family). For information on scholarships (limited availability) please e-mail
