Directed by Rebecca
Kelly, ONSTAGE has been providing dance training, rehearsing
and performance since 1989, at the beautiful Lake Placid Center for the Arts
in Lake Placid, deep in the Northern Adirondack mountains, of New York State. The intensive course provides a process-oriented work experience, while preparing for performance. Students between ages 6-19 years explore a variety of dance techniques, with ballet as the core discipline, designed to cultivate confidence, expose students to new ideas through the arts,
and to experience the satisfaction of striving toward excellence. The two-week program is offered in July. Contact us. Read TESTIMONIALS, and RKB Art in Education in the Adirondacks
