About Us . . .

Our facility allows us to utilize our area for our programs as well as space for all of your dancewear needs. Since 1995 thousands of students have taken dance classes in Celina at Center Stage Performing Arts Academy. We started as a very small school but have grown to become one of the finest dance studios in Celina and the Mercer County area.

 

We realize as a parent you want the best for your child and have a choice between several different dance schools in the Celina area. All studios are not the same. We constantly renovate and improve our facility and ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible. We use age appropriate costumes, music and movements in each of our classes. Center Stage was the first studio in Celina to have a suspended wood floor system. It helps prevent injuries to our dancers. We keep our class sizes small and the owner instructs all students and levels. This helps maintain a one on one learning environment and personal attention to each student. Our instructor is qualified, committed and caring.

 

Center Stage is starting its 28th season. We offer premier instruction in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, contemporary, choreography, tumbling, pom, hip-hop, modeling, and baton twirling for boys & girls.

 

Academy Offers:

  • Convenient Location

  • Suspended Wooden Floor

  • Professionally-trained & Licensed Instructor

  • Age Appropriate Costumes, Music, and Movements

  • Charity Shows, Competitions, Recitals

  • Fundraisers
