Business Review

I just wanted to thank you for the fabulous job you did with the kids in "How to Eat Like a Child." My daughter loved the experience!! Nobody that knew her could believe that she did it. She was very shy and hated any type of attention on her. Last year, she started crying in front of class when they asked her to stand up to read a poem. This was so far out of her comfort zone! You really had a way of making her feel comfortable and come out of her shell. I don't know how you did it! Now she just wants to know when she could do it again! 

West Chester Studio for the Performing Arts has given our daughter an amazing opportunity to explore her love of singing and acting in a positive environment of encouragement and creativity. Truthfully, I cannot say enough positive things about you and the program and what it has done for and meant to Kristen. They send home a writing folder at the end of each school year, I found one written all about you. The assignment was to write about a person who changed your life. In the best way of course!!! Therese has given our daughter the confidence and platform to explore her love of acting and singing. She has been a positive role model and mentor building our daughter's self esteem and growing her talents.

"WCS at Uptown saved (and continues to preserve) my high school senior's sanity during Covid. When other organizations shuttered or reduced offerings, WCS pivoted and actually INCREASED ways kids could become involved and creatively grow. The virtual options are rich, and the in-person instruction follows a stringent safety protocol to the letter. All of this is done without sacrificing teacher enthusiasm or student engagement. Therese in particular is unmatched in her ability to use her love and mastery of craft to inspire each child at his or her own level. During a generally bleak time, my daughter looks forward to and is able to find real joy in the silver lining that is West Chester Studio at Uptown!"
