A Little About Stages:

Established in 1980, STAGES Performing Arts School has taken pride in maintaining a tradition of providing dancers of all ages and levels of experience with a non-competitive atmosphere in which to learn about the arts & about themselves.

Our Aims and Objectives:

  • To provide students of all ages and levels of experience with the opportunity to participate the performing arts.
  • To instill in each student a sense of self-discipline and pride in what they accomplish.
