WE ARE OPEN
We are more thankful than ever before for this Lifesong family. Although we have lost one of our Lifesong family, the love flowing in and out of this place has been such a comforting gift. Oscar leaves a giant hole at Lifesong.
The Oscar J. Kincheloe Memorial Fund has been established to honor the life, passion and work of our beloved friend and teacher. Oscar loved, supported and celebrated EVERYthing and EVERYone at Lifesong. He believed 100% in our mission of shaping hearts through the arts. He loved big and he is loved big!
Oscar always wanted to improve LifeStage Theatre space, specifically with a pulley system for our curtains so that will be our first "Oscar Project." We are also establishing a scholarship in Oscar's name to be awarded to a graduating senior who has grown up at Lifesong. Contributions to the memorial fund can be made via the LifeStage Theatre venmo ... please designate FOR OSCAR when you donate. Click here to donate.

LOVE is at the top of our list every month! Why? It's our most powerful word and it's the glue that holds all the other words together. Our favorite description of love is HERE.
EXCELLENCE is an attitude and always our goal at Lifesong ... to pursue the arts in any other way would be sad. Actually, to pursue anything of value in this life with anything less than a goal of excellence is sad. “Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way.” Booker T. Washington
GRACE is undeserved favor ... you can't earn it. Grace is a gift, a privilege, a reprieve ... it's a courtesy, a kindness. Grace is a charming and attractive trait ... it makes all things beautiful, including art! Grace is all of this and so much more! A life without grace is no life at all. "It is good that the heart be established in grace." Hebrews 13:9
CONSISTENCY is the key to learning and growing as an artist AND a human being. There will be good and bad days along the journey ... that's a fact. The secret to lasting success is found in consistently pursuing your goals and living your life with an attitude of excellence ... while giving and receiving grace along the way!
I wanted to thank you and all of Lifesong - especially everyone who makes SummerStock happen. Emerson is having such a special experience participating in Matilda Jr. this summer. I cannot thank you enough for providing such a safe, supportive environment for children to learn and grow and take risks in. She has grown in confidence and independence more this summer than I can believe. She loves this experience and feels included, invested and excited even as part of the ensemble. What a special thing you have built. As a parent, I feel so blessed and grateful that a place like Lifesong exists and my child gets to experience and benefit from it.
I wanted to take the time to write letting you know what a blessing it has been transitioning to your studio this year! My daughter has felt so incredibly supported, and loved at your studio! Your instructors have developed her love for dance, and made her feel good about herself in a way no other studio has. I can’t thank you enough for what you do for these girls, and how you support them! It has been a challenging year, but you have handled it beautifully! Thank you for being an incredible studio!
Lifesong Theatre truly has something special. I asked Kaitlin one thing she loves most about Lifesong, and she said the sense of community. You can feel that. Not only do you put on amazing productions, but you bring people together, and it feels like a family. Everyone not only works so hard, but everyone supports each other, and you are helping to grow these kiddos as human beings, not just actors/singers/dancers. The girls have made some great connections and friends, and we hope to continue growing those!
We appreciate the consistency and your positive vibes we feel when we connect every week. We are thankful for our Lifesong teachers and friends more than ever during this time!
I LOVE LIFESONG!! I’ve said these words more than I can count. I came to Lifesong when I was 8 years old, and I never left. I made friends that turned into family, learned lessons that have became life mottos, and grew a passion for theater alongside the most kindest, welcoming, hilarious group of people. I am so so thankful for what Lifesong has given me, and I’m confident I would have not been the person I am today without the love and support from the staff and students at Lifesong.
I want to tell you how at peace I feel when I drop McKenna off for dance knowing that you are all keeping the kids best interest at heart ... she is so HAPPY!! Thank you for creating a place for just that. We love you guys and thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Lifesong/LifeStage has changed Max's life. He loves being here more than anything in the world! He has made some amazing new relationships, not only with friends, but with staff as well. Thank you all so much for helping Max discover his love of theater and for being such amazing mentors to him!
When I first came to Lifesong, I was going through a tough season in my life. The people at Lifesong broke me out of my shell. I was never judged for being weird, or vulnerable, or for making mistakes. This place showed me what family looks like. Family is a group of people who love and support each other no matter what. These people are my family, and this place is my second home. I am grateful for the opportunities that Lifesong has given to me. Not only did I get the honor of performing on stage, but I also got to be an assistant for many classes, summer camps, and shows. With this amazing staff trusting me as an assistant teacher, I found my calling. I love teaching kids theatre, and I know that it is what God has called me to do. I am eternally grateful that God led me to Lifesong!
Hannah has been truly loving dancing at Lifesong. I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks to you and the teachers for all the wonderful support and loving encouragement given to her. Thank you for your kind words and providing a safe and secure atmosphere for Hannah to express herself.
Lifesong is one of my favorite places and I want to shout it from the rooftops!! It is truly one of the only places I felt like was a home when I was in high school.
I’ve missed my Lifesong family so much since I’ve went off to college. I am forever grateful for all of the opportunities you gave me. I can truthfully say if I didn’t have such a solid foundation at Lifesong, I would not be where I am today. I thank the Lord almost every night that he brought me to Lifesong at such a young age.
Theatre is wonderfully beneficial for kids to participate in, and this studio is fantastic! I have been involved with many theatre programs through the years with six children and Lifesong stands apart. There is a tangible atmosphere of respect, kindness, encouragement and FUN in this place. It is very evident this has been carefully cultivated by caring directors and instructors. My son is LOVING this program!
At Lifesong, our desire isn't simply to be a creative space, but to foster a safe place for our students who may face challenging stuff in their personal lives. I see it a lot in improv. Sometimes what the kids mention or enact on stage is a reflection of what they're facing outside our doors. And it can be tough. But I have to stay hopeful that our influence can be just as strong as any other they encounter in life. Even 45 minutes a week in an environment of encouragement can be life changing!
Thank you for taking such good care of us! Lifesong is full of wonderful people, and I am always telling those who ask about our great dance experience. You are appreciated!
As a mom, I cannot begin to explain to you the positive impact Improv and Lifesong have had on Conrad's life. It has taken an introverted, shy, and not very confident kid to places I didn't think we would ever see him go. We are forever thankful and grateful for Lifesong for offering this amazing experience. And we are forever in debt to Emily, for giving him the skills and confidence to keep saying yes!
Lifesong not only gave me a solid foundation in my dance training, but also placed imperative role models in my life through the staff who over the years have begun to feel more like family. They constantly encouraged and supported me in pursuing my dreams of dancing professionally and gave me the tools I needed to succeed along the way.
Lifesong has given me everything and more than what I could have wanted in a studio and continues to influence the way I approach the dance world through the lessons my teachers instilled in me throughout high school. I’ll be forever thankful for the education and foundation I’ve received from this special place!
