WHY THE STAR ACADEMIES?

The story behind the program from the director:

I’ve been teaching dance in Tucson for over 20 years. One of the things that I have learned is that students are successful when they commit. I noticed that the dancers (and therefore the families) that were willing to put in the time and effort to be their very best, catapulted to the top in performance quality, skill, and technique.

I noticed that there was something magical that happened when families were “all-in.” I saw them feeling elated with their investment as their child was getting the results they wanted: their child was happily progressing into a beautiful dancer and growing in self-confidence.

From this I rewrote our program and created the Star Academies. I carefully chose which classes would be necessary at each age level in order to make sure the dancers were developing the fundamentals they needed. Then I created curriculum and skill cards (along with full video tutorials) to go along with each level. This insured that each child was quickly mastering what they needed to master. I packaged these things together and the Star Academies were born. Then the skill level at the studio sky-rocketed, parent satisfaction went through the roof, and we watched hundreds more dancers reaching their full potential.

Now, as children enroll at the studio, the parents can know with confidence that their child is going to get an elite dance education. We know that the classes are full of dancers that want to be there, want to work hard, and want to be their very best.

We have created an “ALL-IN” culture that is contagious. And together we are curating excellence through dance!

Now, as a mom with a child in the program, I am more excited then ever to know that my child is enrolled in a program that will help her to become her very best. That is, after all, exactly what I want for my child. And I’m sure it is what you want for yours too.

Commit to becoming your best!

⭐️Think Big!

There is magic in mindset. If we are going to change the world, we have to learn to think bigger and believe in greatness.

⭐️Always strive for Excellence

 We teach not just to practice until you get it right, but to practice until you cannot get it wrong. Anything worth doing is worth doing your very BEST. We believe our dancers are capable of greatness and we instill in them to accept nothing less.

⭐️Commit to your team and your future

 We value the “all-in” mentality. We know that to be your very best it is going to take everything you have. We teach students to embrace working hard, dedication, and giving it all you got!

⭐️Be a good person

 Be honest, be kind, have integrity. Your dancer will grow each day as he/she learns to work hard towards something they love.

⭐️Believe in yourself

Your child will have the opportunity to learn and test specific skills and master new levels within the star Academies. They will realize how much they are capable of achieving. This confidence will help them to shine both on and off the stage.

⭐️Be a good friend

Dance friends are the best friends and we help your child to have fun with his/her besties. We teach what it means to be a part of a team.


What about the pandemic?

We have been leading the way from the beginning in providing safety for our dance families. All CDC guidelines are strictly adhered to. And we have virtual options when needed to. 

Here’s a bit of what we do:
*Full screenings of every student upon entry including temperature checks and hand sanitizing. 
*Social distanced dancing. The studio is divided into boxes that provide safety for each child.
*Closed lobby- but we broadcast every class on zoom so you can still watch your child
*Nightly professional sanitizing

We are offer a virtual option for families if they need to stay at home for a bit. No problem. The dancer can just tune into class from home. 

Our Promise to You!

Promise

We will love and care for your child. Although our program is strict and elite, we are always compassionate and understanding. We lift students up. We never tear them down. Healthy habits and healthy body image are always supported. We put the dancer first- always. Our motto is, “Never let a problem to be solved to be more important than a dancer to be loved.” Your dancer will find a safe, happy, and enriching home within our studio walls.

Happiness Guarantee

We invite you to enroll and come see for yourself. 
If you are not satisfied with our program and you feel our classes are not a fit for your child, we will cancel her enrollment and refund your first payment. Just let us know after the first class (that same day please) if it’s not meant to be.

“My daughter has been dancing at Centre Stage since she was 2.5 years old. She has been in their combo class, which is tap and ballet. They make it fun for the girls while they are still learning moves and appropriate terminology. I honestly recommend them to anyone who will listen.”- Miranda P.

“I chose Centre Stage for my daughter because she is so passionate about dance and wants to pursue it professionally. The programs teach great technique and the dancers are provided with wonderful opportunities to grow and learn for the leaders in the dance community. My daughter is part of the competition team and loves to go and perform on the stage. She loves being part of a team and I appreciate all the important life lessons she is learning.”- Katie S. 

“My daughter has been wanting to do dance since she saw her cousins recital with Centre Stage, which was fantastic. As soon as she was old enough, we put her in the combo class and she loves it! Karli is the best and all the teachers are so sweet and great with the kids. My daughter LOVED the free teddy bear ballet that they host.- Maci P. 

“My little girl loves coming here. She learns a lot while having a good time. The teachers are so fun, talented, and creative. Best dance studio ever!”- Victoria A.

I have been so impressed with how Centre Stage has handled dancing during the pandemic. They re-invented everything overnight. They have gone above and beyond in making sure their is connection for my child and that she continues to learn and grow despite these challenging times. And the virtual recital absolutely blew me away. It was so professional and I was so impressed. -Laurie S.
