Missoula’s Premier Performing Arts Studio
Thank you for choosing On Center Performing Arts!
Our desire and goal is to offer the very best instruction of all performance arts, while instilling the appreciation, discipline, and knowledge required to excel in the chosen field.
Our staff is carefully selected for their professionalism, intelligence, caring, positive attitudes, and attention to detail.
We take pride in offering the absolute best right here in Missoula, Montana. Professional training, atmosphere, attitudes, careers, and results! Welcome to the On Center Dance family.
Our daughter has been coming to On Center Performing Arts for dance, music, and acting lesson for the last 12 years. We chose On Center, all those years ago, because we had heard they offered a variety of dance lessons (ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap) and didn’t focus solely on ballet. Director/Owner Lisa Deer works tirelessly to make sure each of her instructors are not only qualified to teach the specific dance, music, acting class they are hired for, but that they also know how to work well with children, teens, and adults. Any performer will tell you that good technique is extremely important and every instructor at On Center Performing Arts stresses the significance of good technique, but there is far more that your child will get from taking classes at On Center. They learn poise, self-control, how to follow instructions, confidence on and off stage, how to work with others, the ability to take constructive criticism (and to say, “thank you” afterward!), time management, a love of the arts, and how to change costumes in nothing flat! The Lund Family LOVES On Center Performing Arts and we know you will too!Cris and Dana Lund
Our introduction to On Center Performing Arts Studio was in the summer of 2008 when our daughter was just over 2 years old when we were invited to attend the annual Student Appreciation Day at the studio after inquiring about the Pre-Ballet/Tap class. We thought, “Let’s put her in a class and see how she likes it” not knowing that we would still be in the studio almost 7 years later because of her enthusiasm and love for dance that the staff at On Center has nurtured. After her first recital performance, she came running off the stage yelling “Sign me up for next year!” it was that much fun. She was hooked. And we were hooked on the family atmosphere and the love that Lisa and her staff have for the children they teach, which is simply unmatched. We see it every time we walk into the studio.Jason and Aimee Tupeck
