Life goes on

Studio reopening in February

I want to take a moment and thank everyone for your kindness and understanding during this difficult time. The loss of the love of my life has been devastating, but I know in my heart that continuing on with my dream is what he would of wanted.   The studio will be opening back up in February. 

Open and excepting new company members


Straight Up and On Pointe is a performing arts company for teens, about teens. It gives teens, a productive outlet to express their hopes, dreams, and fears, through all aspects of performing arts.

They will be taking on issues, such as peer pressure, bullying, gangs, teen violence, suicide, world hunger, world peace, body image, as well as drugs and alcohol abuse, just to name a few.  Every performance will promote awareness, educate, and provide information on where help can be found for those in need of it.   

All productions are written, directed and produced by company members, giving them the opportunity to highlight their individual talents as they let their voices ring out, giving the audience a small glimpse into how they view the world around them.            

Giving back to the community

Straight Up and On Pointe company members will also be giving back to their communities through car washes to help raise money, cheering for national cancers walks, filming public service messages to further spread awareness and provide information where help can be found, and so much more.

Gracie is Dead, Suicide awareness. Start of improvo


We are at the beginning stages of an emotional performance geared toward teen suicide awareness and prevention. This was created entirely by the amazing teens of Straight Up and On Pointe. This is how 90% of all their performance start out before they hit the stage. They work hard and mold their improv into something that touches their audience and brings awareness to all that have the honor to see them at their best.

Beginning choreography for mass shooting victims

 Day one of choreography for the final number of Straight Up and On Pointe’s first performance.( a tribute to all those lost in a mass shooting) Still in awe of the genius of Ashleigh Berney. Her ability to interpret the story I am trying to tell and bring it to life through the power, and beauty of dance.  Watching someone with her level of talent  work her magic just leaves me breathless and inspired.  Her studio accepting new dancers. Please contact A&B DANCE COMPANY
