Glenda & WrenCenter Stage is where your child learns HOW to dance, and not just a dance routine. We would like to welcome you to our studio family, led by our instructors. For over 35 years, we have enjoyed teaching dance in Garner and Fuquay-Varina, and look forward to many more wonderful years.

We Believe in the Individual.
We Believe in Technique.
We Believe in Proven Methods of Instruction.
We believe in hard work and high expectations.
We believe that dancers should perform.
We believe in Quality teaching.

Teacher helping Student

Why is Center Stage different?

  • Because we have a genuine concern for each of our students.
  • We want them to become the best that they can be in every aspect of their life.
  • We offer after school pick up for the working parents.
  • We teach by technique and not by routine, and we teach correct dance terminology.
  • We have two locations to better serve you.
  • Our classes are taught by professional teachers, not just dancers.
  • We have assistants in each lower level class to provide a better one-on-one learning experience.
  • We have different payment options so that each child can have the gift of dance.
  • Our teachers are highly qualified dance instructors. We do not hire teenagers to teach children.
