Alternative after-school activities

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Ballet and baseball as after-school activities are so last year. These days we're talking about D.J. school, pop star school and how to be a video game programmer.

There is a music studio on Long Island where every kid has star potential. Former reality show contest winner Donnie Klang and longtime friend Mathew Laporte founded The Loft Studio. All kids are welcome. They've had real success like up-and-coming talent Madison Beer. Justin Johnes posted a song to YouTube and it has racked up nearly a half million hits.

If singing isn't for your child, then Dylan Pierce and the instructors at the Pixel Academy in Brooklyn have after-school space for kids and teens to learn digital technologies such as 3D print design and video game and app development.

And if your child ever wanted to learn to be a DJ, then Dubspot has a class for it.
