Welcome

 

In STAGES’ 40th year of operation we look forward to continuing our tradition of providing dancers of all ages and levels of experience with a non-competitive atmosphere in which to learn about the performing arts and about themselves.

Established in 1980, STAGES offers students an environment which is non-competitive, secure, encouraging and supportive.  We make every effort to ensure than students are given the opportunity to enhance not only their understanding and talents in the performing arts and dance, but their ability to work in a group setting, their physical conditioning, and their growth as an individual.
