When I started off the week at studio2stage, I had no idea what to expect. We walked into the studios ready to begin and Jimmy gave us a speech on what to expect and what we would gain from this experience. He asked all of us who wanted to go on tour when they were older. I raised my hand, but I honestly only did because most of the others did. He asked us the same question at the end of the week, and I raised my hand in 100% confidence, knowing that was what I wanted to do. I gained so much knowledge from this experience, and not just about dance. At the beginning of the week he also told us we would make life long friends in just these 9 days. I didn't really fully believe him. However by the end of the week, I felt like family. Every single person was so accepting and I felt like I had known everyone for my whole life. The choreographers and producers were absolutely amazing. Leaving everyone was one of the hardest things I've ever done. As for the performance, I can't even begin to describe what was going through my head. When the lights flashed on and we started dancing the opening number, the sound of hundreds of people cheering filled my ears. It was so incredible and that very moment made me realize that I was where I am supposed to be, and that this is what I want to do with my life. Thank you studio2stage for giving me more than I ever could have imagined: a new passion for dance, amazing memories that I will remember forever, and friendships that will last a lifetime. I'm so lucky to have had something that made it so hard to say goodbye.

Hi studio2stage team!
Sitting at home after the past 9 days, it's hard to believe what an impact studio2stage has had on me. Before this I had only known competition dancing; the wigs, the judges, the nerves. To stand in the wings on show day, and to have nothing but excitement running through me was so indescribable.
I am thankful beyond words for the production team for making this all possible and the choreographers for sharing their knowledge with us. They made 9 days look like we had been practicing for months! I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to surround myself with this week and I would come back in a heartbeat!

Much love to everyone!

Dear s2s team,
I don't know where to start. From the day I walked through the doors of rehearsals i didn't know that those 9 days would be the best 9 days of my entire life. Thanks to the Choreographers, Producers, Cast, Musicians, Costume department etc for being so helpful all week for being so kind, thoughtful, and making me feel so comfortable and special being so far away from home. I was so inspired, so grateful, fulfilled and so happy all week. The choreographers were the most kind hearted and special people and I am so glad I got to spend 9 days with them. It was nice to have them sitting with us during breakfast, lunch and dinner it made me feel so connected to them. They were so open minded so helpful and gave you brilliant advice if you needed it. I admire and respect them so much. From the Oscars night, to dancing in Times Square, singing on the train into NYC, Ordering pizza late at night with the most amazing people, having sings songs in the university, laughing so much our stomach hurts and tears were strolling down our faces these were memories I'll never ever forget. s2s really made me test my limits, be fearless, jump into everything with two feet, and have an open mind and heart. I grew as a person, became more independent and learnt so much about myself that I didn't know. The vibes all week were so positive and I couldn't wait to wake up every morning and do what I love. s2s has really shown me how much I want to fulfil my dreams of being a professional show dancer and tour the whole world. I also learned that it's the people you meet along the way that makes the experience so much more incredible and worth while. I would recommend s2s to any dancer who wants pursue a career within dance it is so totally worth every second. This feels like the start for me. I can't wait for studio2stage 2016.

Love you all so much,

Wish you all the best of luck in everything you all do in the future. Hope we cross paths again very soon.

Love, Sarah X

I wanted to thank the production team, the choreographers, and everyone else that made the past week so incredible! It was the most amazing experience and I learned more than I ever thought I would about the show dancing world. There are no words to describe the love I feel towards all the dancers I shared this experience with. The experience you have created with this camp is a once in a lifetime experience and it taught me so much about what I can do in my dancing career. There are so many different shows and tours that I had no idea about, until I had the chance to learn from the choreographers. I think it is an amazing way for them to pass down their knowledge and experience in the show dancing world to aspiring dancers. I am incredibly thankful and blessed to have been part of studio2stage, and I really hope I
