What Students Are Saying

“At On Stage I discovered how much I love to dance, and they really kindled the passion I have for dancing. There are so many lessons I have learned in the studio. Dance is really hard. I have learned what it’s like work for something and realize it won’t just be handed to you. So, while growing up with dance has taught me how to point my feet, count to eight, put on false eyelashes, rhinestone costumes, and make everlasting friendships, I’d say the most valuable lesson I have learned is that there is no substitute for hard work. Even if dance doesn’t work out as a career, I will have developed a strong work ethic and that’s irreplaceable. “ – Megan Fraser, former On Stage student, student of the School of Albert Ballet

“Dance followed me all through my teen years. It gave me an outlet to release my stresses, and it also taught me the importance of time management; fitting in morning band practices, school, theater practices, volunteering, homework and of course, dance classes, all before the sun set each day. As well, being a quiet person, performing gave me confidence, and I have been able to apply this too many different situations, both in work and school.” – Kaitlyn Purvis, On Stage Dance alumni

“As a very energetic child, my parents had quite a few choices for what activities to sign me up for. Luckily for me, they chose dance. From there, it couldn’t be stopped! From ballet, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre, to recitals, competitions, workshops, and being an assistant teacher; dance was a very important and exciting part of my life. To this day, I prefer to jete, gallop, and pas-de-chat everywhere rather than just walk. Dancing at On Stage allowed me to meet people that I still call my friends to this day, and make a lasting connection with not only dance but everyone involved with it. The things I’ve learned from my years dancing go beyond how to stretch and turnout my feet, and I’m so happy to continue to be a part of it.” – Kate Linder, On Stage Dance alumni
