DANCE-A-THON IS COMING UP!
We have 14 wonderful CenterStage students trying very hard to reach their goals and make it to the Dance Excellence festival in Los Angeles California in April! Their final travel expenses are due February 16, 2018 and THEY NEED YOUR HELP!
Saturday, February 10th from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., the CenterStage Dance Excellence team will be hosting a DANCE-A-THON! For a $25 donation at the door, students can dance the night away! There will be different genres of dance in each room taught by Dance Excellence students! We will also have dance-offs, games, and MORE!! Invite a friend or two who can also come hang out and have fun for a great cause! There will be FREE pizza and other concessions for purchase. Let's pack the house!
Parents! Stick around too! We will have some amazing SWING DANCE instructors here just for YOU!
Attendees are also invited to recruit additional donations from friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone else interested in supporting our Gallatin students. Get as many donations as you can and then join us Friday to celebrate the new year and dance the night away! The student who raises the most money will be crowned the dance-a-thon King OR Queen!
If you have any questions or are unable to attend and would like to just make a donation please contact Renea Allen by email
email@example.com or call or text 615-969-1883.
CenterStage Performing Arts Academy offers dance classes for all ages in:
We also offer students private lessons in:
Private lessons are available for all ages, and can be scheduled in 1/2 hour, 45 minute, and 1 hour time lengths.
30 minute lessons are $20 per lesson, 45 minute lessons are $30, and hour long lessons are $40.
We know the only way to learn about performing is to PERFORM! With over 7 shows a year, we give CenterStage students, and students in the community, the opportunity to learn about every facet of producing a show – by doing it. Performance, costumes, directing, sound, lighting design, videography… you name it! Developing these skills is fun, but it also builds confidence, teaches responsibility, team building, and inspires creativity. Whether our students pursue a career in the arts or not, they will have developed a skill set to work professionally in any arena.
At CenterStage, you can participate in musicals, plays, variety shows, one-act's, almost every kind of performance/show in theater. Students can choose which shows they would like to participate in, with a new show rehearsing about every seven weeks. Variety shows are written around our students. We find their hidden talents and feature them! No previous performance experience or auditioning is needed!
