I will continue to provide updates as they come available.
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.
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.
Just a typical day in the studio, Company members having fun and finding their voices. Come and be apart of something bigger than yourself. Thank you Z104 and Larae Cooper.

Opening of our first show, we had a blast and the show was a huge hit. Standing room only. So proud of my kids.

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
