Mission Statement 

Upstage Center of Performing Arts strives to provide a nurturing and safe environment for our students.  We deliver affordable, quality, age appropriate and respectful dance instruction to all ages and all skill levels.  Our studio encourages passion, confidence, teamwork and work ethic to help each student excel both in and out of the dance room and throughout their life.   


Our Studio Values:

  • Kindness/Respect – We treat others as we would like to be treated.  We communicate in a thoughtful, honest yet sensitive manner.  We also show respect by being punctual, wearing the studio dress code to class and saving “screen time” for outside of class.

  • Inclusion – We look out for our friends, welcome new dancers and support each other.

  • Continuous Improvement – We believe in hard work and that we can always do better.  We understand all corrections are making us into better dancers and giving us skills.  Progress not perfection.

  • Community/Family – We create a joyful community where positive friendships are fostered.  We share the love of dance with energy, passion and enthusiasm.

My daughter has been taking dance classes from the instructors at this dance studio since they opened. She has grown so much and has gained self-confidence, self-disciple, leadership as well as many other skills during her dance lessons. She is involved in several classes and is also on the competition team. I would highly recommend Upstage Center of Performing Arts for anyone wanting to get their children involved in a positive dance experience. - Anna
