I just wanted to say thank you for the opportunity to be a part of studio2stage!! It was the most amazing 10 days, I loved every minute of it. The first day when we were asked to raise our hand if wanted to be a in tours I hadn't put my hand up because I was unsure if this was something that I wanted to pursue. After the final show was finished, I realized if I was asked that question again my hand would be raised high and proud. Dancing in studio2stage showed me a whole new side of dance. It helped me grow as a dancer and a person. I'm so thankful for all the people I got to meet and things I got to experience! I learned there is so much more to dance than just competing. To my surprise, I discovered I liked dancing in a show even more than I do in competition!! I hope I can be a part of studio2stage again next year, and thank you again to you and all the other staff of s2s for this amazing opportunity!

From the very first group warm-up to the final goodbyes, studio2stage was one of the most joyful, fulfilling, and unforgettable experiences of my life. I feel incredibly honored to have shared the week not only with the incredible production team, choreographers, and musical directors, but also with so many passionate and talented dancers and musicians. studio2stage completely changed my perspective on what it means to be a professional musician/dancer and I will be forever grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from such amazing people.

Thanks to the entire production team, Michelle, Jim and Susie (plus Siobhan and Barry!) for creating such a wonderful experience for all of us and for keeping everything running smoothly. Miriam, Aidan, James, and Zach, thanks for your incredible choreography and for letting me dance as much as possible - it made the whole thing even more fantastic! Finally, the biggest thanks of all to the best MD and assistant MD ever (and also to Bertrand)! Anton and Sully, I have never learned so much or laughed so hard or made such incredible music and I am so proud to have shared the stage with you!

Much love to everyone and I hope to work with you all again soon!

Hi studio2stage team,

Before doing studio2stage this past week, I had no idea how much one experience could shape my character and help me grow so much as a person.
I remember the day that I logged onto my account and discovered that I had been accepted so clearly. I was in school and immediately called my mom from the library, crying (much to the librarian's discontent) because I was absolutely overjoyed. Although I was excited, I also felt bad putting that financial burden on my parents because they already helped support so many of my dance ambitions. Paying for studio2stage was something that I wanted to do by myself, and so my acceptance motivated me to get a job, and even though working while going to school was difficult, every night I would think about how amazing the experience was going to be, and it made everything worth it.
On the first day of rehearsal, I was so nervous but also incredibly excited. I came into the experience not knowing many people, but I was absolutely thrilled to be able to work with all of the other talented dancers and world-renowned choreographers. As the week progressed, the practices became less painful, and I began to see how rewarding working hard as a team could be. It's amazing how many different people I met, and now every major I can't wait to find and reconnect with all of my friends.
There is no feeling more fulfilling than the one that I felt the day of the final performance. Being able to stand on that stage and perform for all of those people just filled me with the deepest happiness, especially because I knew that all of those extra hours that I had to work and blisters that I had to endure had led up to that point.

I just wanted to thank you so much for making this dream a reality for me, and I hope to see you and everyone else next year!

Thank you to all the studio2stage team for everything you have done! I had the time of my life at s2s! Before flying out I was nervous about not knowing anyone, and that I wouldn't be good enough but everyone made me feel so welcome and I made the best of friends straight away!! studio2stage has made me crave touring even more! I found the experience very inspiring, many people say that getting into a professional show is to hard but after s2s I have been motivated to work hard and follow my dreams and prove them wrong!! The show was amazing and made the hard work worth it!! I'm so sad it's all over, I want to do it all over again!!! Thank you so much!!x

As I entered studio2stage 2015 a veteran, I was eager to get to rehearsals and contribute to making the show even better than the previous year. I had great expectations of what the next nine days would hold, and as each day came to an end, another expectation was exceeded. Studio2stage is unlike anything else in our small Irish dancing world. It brought together a group of dancers of all ages, levels, and organizations. Competition meant nothing once I stepped onto Kean

Hello studio2stage team!
Thank you so much for coordinating such a fabulous music and dancing experience for all of us! I feel so lucky to have been part of the 2015 studio2stage crew, and I will never forget all of the amazing people that I met and all of the new things that I learned! Working with Miriam, Aidan, Zach, and James was an unreal opportunity, and I am so thankful for gaining a glimpse into what the Irish dance show and touring industry truly entails. I am now even more excited and anxious to pursue my own performance career, and am hopeful to collaborate with and dance alongside many of the talented studio2stage members somewhere in the future!
Thank you again for everything.

Hi team!
Thank you for the most amazing experience I've had. studio2stage was the most challenging but rewarding 9 days of my life. Every minute I spent dancing whether it be in the studio or on the stage was well spent. I made friendships with people that will last a lifetime as well. It was amazing to see everyone's hard work come together to form a truly wonderful show. studio2stage has definitely broadened my horizons and has shown me what it is really like to be a performer, and I loved every second of it. I cannot wait to audition again for next year!
Thank you!
