of the group

As a seasoned teaching artist, preschool teacher, and director of children's musicals, founder Emilie Goodrich believes in the transformative power of performance, play, and the deep connections we forge through music. "Essa," derived from her Hebrew name meaning "Star," symbolizes her lifelong connection to the arts and her role in guiding the next generation of performers. Emilie is thrilled to introduce the Essa Star Playgroup, a vibrant initiative uniting North Brooklyn's community.


Located in the heart of Williamsburg, this playgroup offers mommy/parent/caregiver and me classes, along with preschool after-school programming. Each session is thoughtfully crafted around theatre and movement, providing an engaging, sensory experience that promotes bonding and builds a supportive community for new parents.
