from STAGES Founder and Artistic Director Kim Breiland

……. And then WOW. March 2020 happened …… and we found ourselves in uncharted territory and on a very different planet. To the students, parents, teachers, staff, and so many others who helped figure things out (even when I didn’t want to hear it) and get things going on Zoom and then back at the studio: You are forever in my heart. “Thank you” will never ever be enough to thank you for your support and assistance through those times and now these times… Whatever these times might bring… We will get through it.

In STAGES’ 42nd year of operation we look forward to continuing our tradition of providing dancers of all ages and levels of experience the very best training possible in a supportive, non-competitive and caring environment in which they can learn about the performing arts and themselves.

Through the training we offer it is our goal to promote confidence and a sense of accomplishment in each student. It is our belief that all students should have an equal opportunity to learn in a safe environment fostering self-expression, a healthy body, responsibility, discipline, and pride in their abilities.

I would also like to recognize the dedication of the folks in our student teacher program and their continued work and dedication to what STAGES has to offer.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns regarding anything we are doing (or not doing) please let us know. We are trying to provide a service that you want and like, and only through your input can we continue to do so.

To our returning students and parents, THANK YOU for your continued support through the years. To all the newcomers to STAGES, thank you for considering our
school and I hope that we are able to satisfy your needs as an artist, and/or artist’s parents.

Sincerely, Kimberly Brooke Breiland
