TESTIMONIALS

I have three children in the homeschool group.  It has been such a great experience for all of them.  My favorite day was when my 7-year-old son came home and told me his favorite class was Theatre & Storytelling !  My children have come to love and learn different styles of dance and they did a wonderful play! It has been the best experience and we can't wait for next year!

-Megan T.

The homeschool aspect at BPA has been an amazing addition to our homeschool this year!  Shelby, Landry, Kayeli & Kyle have invested so much time, energy and passion into each of my 3 children.  I have 2 SUPER shy timid, nervous boys who, during the performances this year got up, sang solos, had speaking parts and acted as if they have been doing it forever.  We cannot wait for another year with Backstage Performing Arts.
