Our Mission & Philosophy
STAGES is a California Not-for-Profit Public Benefit Corporation (5013c status pending) whose mission is to provide a non-competitive environment that promotes self esteem and fitness through the art of dance for all ages & skill levels.
We are committed to providing lessons & performance opportunities for those who have either developmental, emotional or financial barriers that would prevent them from pursuing traditional dance opportunities.
STAGES curriculum comprises a vital lifelong extension of our students’ education beyond the classroom. We encourage children, teens and even adults to take steps on this journey to bring benefits of the creative arts into their lives. Along with teaching discipline to meet the mental & physical challenges of dancing, we hope to be able to strengthen positive and useful memories in surroundings of camaraderie and fun.
The goal of STAGES is to offer classes in which the feelings of success and accomplishment are within reach for all …so the possibilities to grow are endless! Our standards and expectations are high, but we support our students every step of the way.
