Click below to watch our commercial with Russell's on Time Warner!

Also, watch Time Warner channels for our new commercial airing soon for Russell's Steaks, Chops, & More with our very own Elizabeth Culver singing a note that actually cracked a wine glass! Let us know when you see our studio on TV! Thank you to Russell's for allowing our studio to have this incredible opportunity! Honestly, there is NO better place to eat the best steak in town than Russell's Steaks, Chops, & More!

Just a few new rules that will now be enforced concerning our studio. Please no crop tops, no tummy showing, no major cleavage, and absolutely no short shorts to be worn at any future performances. we need to look professional at all times from now on. It's ALL about image!



From now on...(unless otherwise specified) ALL Jr's Shows and Studio/Company shows will be separate.

Rule 1: COMPANY Members (those who have auditioned and made it to COMPANY level) will perform TWO songs at a time. STUDIO members will perform one song at a time and only sign up again if there is time in the show. (which there usually is) It is considered to be an honor to be in COMPANY.

Rule 2: Once signed up, you may NOT sign up more than once unless everyone else has had a chance to sing at least once.

Rule 3: If someone arrives late, they IMMEDIATELY go to the TOP of the list to sing!


Rule 5: It is expected that you stay for the entire show if possible. It shows your dedication and also allows us to see that you are supporting your fellow studio members. This also has a LOT of weight on YOU becoming a Company Member at some point! (This especially goes for our upcoming ALL ACCESS show in June) This year, due to so many in the studio, you must be invited to sing in this concert! Otherwise it would last over 5 hours and we already have the concert on 2 separate nights! Dates to be announced very soon!! Probably going to be June 18th, 19th, or 20th!!One night is for Jr's and the other night is for COMPANY members and Debbie Bello's Studio/Company members. (other teachers will be having their own shows at the studio so that their students can show off their talent with their families there!) We promise it will be just as special!

Thank you for your understanding with these new rules!
