Dear Parents and Students,
I am excited to welcome you to our upcoming performance to conclude the 2019 Fall semester. Just like years past, this performance will be unforgettable for both the performers and their families.
It is Starlight Studios’ philosophy that performing on stage is not only a pivotal learning experience but a rite of passage for performers young and old, a chance to shine in front of family and friends that they anticipate with nervous excitement. The performing experience helps build self-esteem and self-confidence to be used for many facets of the performer’s life.
The rehearsal process is a tremendous learning experience as well. It helps develop retention skills, and by working with their classmates on a group performance, they learn the positive aspects of working as a team to create the best end result.
Your dedication is necessary to this performance to make it the best possible. Our staff and myself will be working around the clock, especially in the weeks leading up to this event, to make this performance the best it can be and assure every student is prepared. I have no doubt that you will be just as invested in this beautiful performance and its success as I am.
Please keep this page bookmarked for reference, and check back frequently. It will contain much (if not all) of the information needed to make our Christmas show the best one yet!
Owner of Starlight Studios
