Attendance is important for the progress of our students.
Our goal is for each of our students to progress at a steady pace, being involved in multiple performances each year will give students the opportunity to improve performance skills and technique throughout the year.
Please e mail or call the studio if your child will be missing class.
Costumes - Here at On Stage we do costuming a little different. Each student purchases one costume that is theirs to use in the show and take home. We also have an in house costume shop which allows for the use of many costumes throughout a show this saves parents the cost of costuming each and every number in the show.
