"As an eight grader my granddaughter, joined Spark in the fall and has found it a great challenge and support for growing her natural talents. Performance nights she leapt to a new height. Half the front row was friends, cousins, aunts and uncles. She was flawless and we were....proud and grateful!"
"We had an amazing experience at The Spark! My teenaged daughter did a show there and we were so impressed with the professional, yet supportive, training and opportunities she had. She was challenged in a part she loved, gained so much confidence, and grew so much as a performer! I would highly recommend The Spark!"
