Welcome to the On Stage Academy of Performing Arts
We are dedicated to providing our students with a well rounded education in the performing arts. Classes here at On Stage are designed to teach confidence, and creativity, through the art of performing.

Sing Dance Act Perform - Through classes and performances, our students learn essential life skills such as team work, dedication, responsibility, respect, self discipline, confidence and time management.

Trained Professional Teachers -  Lead by Linda Mercer-Botelho studio owner and director our team of professional teachers have experience both on the stage and in the classroom. Staff members include professional company member, SAG and AFTRA performers, National Choreography winners and Master Teachers.

Dates and Tuition- The On Stage season will begin on September 7, 2022 and continue to June 2023 with a full schedule of programs offered each summer.
Students should register on line.
Our full automated system will help you to register and choose the classes you would like to take.
Tuition is run on the first of each month.
$35.00 registration fee (individual student) will hold your spot for classes
$50.00 for Family 


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.
