This is from the original series, “What the Performing Arts Mean to Me,” where I asked students why they love theater, music, and dance and why it’s important in our society. Third on the list, we have Megan Glewwe. Oh, Megan Glewwe. Megan is a girl with her own mind who loves to learn and has an incredible flair for words. You can see her passion for the performing arts and our studio in her piece. By the way, I promise that I did not bribe her to sound like a commercial for Setting the Stage;)
The performing arts have been a major part of my life since I was merely 3. Ms. Catie has made a huge impact on my life and has been an amazing spark of inspiration since then. The arts have always let me release my imagination and go a million different ways.
Freedom has been given to me because of the performing arts. Freedom, fun, and finales! Whenever a show ends, I always congratulate my fellow performers, or if I am not in the show, I always want to support people who are pursuers of the same dream as me.
Dancing, to me, is life. Since the age of three, I don’t think a single day has gone by without me doing, at the very least, a grand jeté. I am on the school dance dance team, and I am a proud member of the all new Setting the Stage Performing Arts Studio.
Here at Setting the Stage, I do ballet, tap, jazz, musical theater, and hip hop. All this and more is available. Everyone here is friendly to one another, and we are open to new people.
