TESTIMONIALS

We love Backstage Performing Arts!! My 6 year old has taken dance there since she was 3. I love how they teach proper technique and take the time to make sure they do it right, even for the little ones. I highly recommend Backstage Performing Arts!!

-Aleesha M.

My daughter has loved the young musical theatre class. She is little and hasn't been in a dance class before, but the teachers were able to help keep both fun and structure in the class and I really appreciated that. When we went to the final recital, I was blown away.
