Cassidy has a new joy that comes directly from her classes and rehearsals with your company. We are enjoying watching our daughters self-confidence and skills grow. Sarah has a unique ability to bring out not only each participant’s individual talent, but in the short time she sees them each week, she also seems to assess exactly what makes each child tick.

Lucas’s world changed 3 years ago when he auditioned for Ragtime. Being a part of the Wavestage family has turned him into a full fledged lover of the stage. Sarah’s dedication to professionalism and passion to watch these students succeed has given Lucas the drive to be the very best he can be every time he steps on that stage. The friends he has made through this program are supportive, enthusiastic and want to see each other succeed. I can honestly say that there is no other program that could have given Lucas a more positive environment with which to become an actor.

Sam has received training in voice, dance, and performing in front of a live audience – plus all of the backstage workings that make a production come to life. She has been given the opportunity to grow as a performer alongside a group of people she considers a second family.

Wavestage provided me with my first ballet, jazz, and tap lessons. It sprung me into the wonderful world of theatre and initiated my transformation from an amateur performer into a serious, professional artist.

I can’t even imagine how different my life would be if I hadn’t joined Wavestage six years ago. I have grown up surrounded by passionate, empathetic, likeminded people and they have truly shaped me into the person I am today. I have made lifelong friends who I know will always have my back. I am forever grateful to my wonderful director Sarah Langford for continuing to give me opportunities and inspiring me to become a better performer and person. I couldn’t be happier to be a part of such a special family.
