Musical Theater School


Upstage Studios is an arts organization that encourages self-expression through dance, music, and theatre.  We believe that art is an essential part of any thriving community. The arts lift the spirit and raise the collective consciousness.

At Upstage Studios we work to encourage a thriving community of artists and appreciation of art within the areas of Metro Halifax and Dartmouth. We facilitate classes, performances, and workshops for everyone from eight to eighty years of age.

Drama has an important role to play in the personal development of our students. The skills and qualities developed by students in drama, such as teamwork, creativity, leadership and risk-taking are assets in all subjects and all areas of life. Drama stimulates the imagination and allows students to explore issues and experiences in a safe and supportive environment.

It is vital to create an atmosphere of security, trust and concentration. Drama promotes self-esteem and provides all students with a sense of achievement regardless of academic ability.

It’s about social skills, communication skills and having fun – we learn by doing!  

Come join us!  We look forward to seeing you on the stage.
