Not only is dance LOTS OF FUN, it also offers a unique opportunity, by applying what is learned, to improving your every day life . The benefits of dance go far beyond the actual learning of certain movements and terminology. The development of coordination, concentration, body awareness, strength, agility, self discipline, poise, and personal achievement are just a few of the areas which carry over to all other daily activities.
On Stage Dance Academy has been educating for over 40 years and its owners and teachers combined have been teaching and/or involved in dance for most of their lives. In fact, most have been dancing since childhood. Our teachers and staff work together to offer the very best that dance has to offer and to encourage and educate children to be the best they can be.

Ages in these programs range from 4 years to adult and they are all very talented performers. They have performed throughout the valley in Arizona and have even performed out of state, such as, Disney World and Las Vegas! Some of the local events that include regular performances are the Arizona State Fair, Glendale Glitters (and other holiday events), retirement homes, school events, fund raisers and many more. After the student has been in tap, ballet and jazz at On Stage, for at least one year, they may ask their teacher about becoming a Performing Company member.
