Grateful for the Stage Experience

Apr 15, 2021

I had a great time at Draper Center for all of the seven years that I trained there. What I am most grateful for is the amount of stage experience I received while I was dancing at Draper Center. Not only did the teachers help improve my technique, but they forced you to dance and perform like a professional dancer on stage. I attribute that experience for being able to skip a second company and become a Company dancer straight after school.
