Why Center Stage?

Where do I start?? Why Center Stage?

 

Because there is literally no other facility like it. I honestly feel lucky to have a facility in my town that truly trains its students as triple threats in all areas of singing, dancing and acting/musical theatre. As a parent of a student who is interested in pursing a professional career in dancing and theatre, I feel that the training they provide as well as the knowledge they've gained from having former students who have either had successful careers on Broadway & Broadway tours, or who are currently training at conservatories and beyond, is beneficial in not only making my child more marketable in such a competitive field, but is also essential in helping us make the right decisions along her career path.

 

I have never been more at home than when we are there. Center Stage is truly the only other place on the planet that I refer to as "home" and the people as "family'' and is distinguished only from my actual home by a mortgage payment and from my actual family by blood! That's saying something!

 

"Home wasn't a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go."

-S. Dessen

 

Center Stage is never stagnant, but always seeking growth in both its staff, students, classes, and facilities to keep up with the ever-changing and rapidly growing popularity of the arts.

Thank you for creating an atmosphere where Allie feels safe, loved, and will receive an amazing dance and musical theatre education! 
 
We chose Center Stage so that Allie would have the opportunity to explore more than just dance. Seeing so many talented performers shine at the Showcase proved that we made the right choice!

Breathtaking, jawdropping, amazing...are just a few of the words that I would use to describe the high school competition teams. To bring out this caliber of talent in these young people does not happen by accident but by the perfect combination of nurturing and high expectations of the instructors.
 
No facility in this area produces such a high quality product.

There is nothing better as a parent then seeing the joy on my daughter's face and hearing the excitement in her voice when I pick her up from class! CSPAA has truly become her "home away from home".
 
The quality of dance and musical theatre education is top notch and that is evident in every CSPAA performance! CSPAA is in a league of their own!

I wouldn't take my daughter anywhere else! Not only is the instruction amazing, but the emphasis on being a respectable, modest, and good person is expected and emphasized. We love our Center Stage family!

We really become like the people we surround ourselves with.
 
I have never been with a group of folks (teachers & staff) that smile more than you do and have such positive attitudes. Adri spends a lot of time at Center Stage, and I can see the effects this time is having in her precious life. She truly has come out of her shell and her self confidence is through the roof. She believes she can do anything. (And she can). Center Stage has been the best investment I could have made in her life.
 
I truly think of you guys as a partner in molding her to become a wonderful young lady. She (and I) feel totally comfortable at Center Stage and as much as we are there, feel like you are our second home.
