Center Stage LEARN TO DANCE FOR FREE!
Contact Us: Dear Parent or Guardian, Members of Center Stage invite your child to experience the joy of dance! Center Stage's mission is to provide FREE dance lessons for children in the Columbia Public Schools that may not have the opportunity otherwise. University of Missouri college students teach the classes that will meet one hour each week on the MU campus. We also have two recitals scheduled during the year to showcase our fabulous dancers. We have offered classes the past four years, and Center Stage has been an outstanding success! Our students learn techniques and skills just as they would in a traditional dance studio. We rely on individual and company donations for costumes, props, music, and paperwork. Please remember to fully complete the forms for registration AND liability, and turn it in as soon as possible! If you have any further questions about Center Stage please contact one of the officers and/or sponsor. Or email us and we will get back to you as soon as possible (email listed to the right). PLEASE RETURN FORMS TO OUR MAILBOX AT THE STUDENT CENTER, THROUGH THE CENTER STAGE EMAIL OR ON THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS
Classes begin the week of February 11th. We look forward to meeting you and your child! If you have any questions, feel free to call or email. Sincerely, Sarah Herington, President Megan Mast, Sponsor

The guardian must notify teachers in person of any changes or additions to the list. Students who consistently disrupt class might be asked to sit out. If the problem persists, students may be asked to leave class permanently. Parents and siblings may stay and watch practice, but should leave if they are a distraction to the dancers.
