By the performance my confidence had grown massively and we performed a fab show!

I am going to miss our UpStage family and how coming every Friday and seeing everyone and having the best time was the highlight of my week. UpStage was and always will be such a big part my life, you helped give me the confidence and perseverance to believe in myself and keep going no matter what. This helped me when I needed it the most, and I know will stay with me always. I will always hold these treasured memories close to my heart forever, and will always remember that “you’re never fully dressed without a smile!”.

I have a lot of great memories from my years in UpStage but I think my favourite will have to be my first show being a funky monkey! It was the first time I'd got up and performed and gave me that confidence which I've carried throughout the rest of my life to continue my love of performing.

I have loved every second of being part of UpStage and I will always treasure the memories I have made with some truly amazing people.

I think the thing that I will remember most from UpStage is making friends that I will have for life, and being able to enjoy the whole experience with them. I think that this is what I have taken away from UpStage more than anything, and is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

I was terrified of doing my 1st solo. When I did it, I was so happy, it was a big achievement for me. My best friend watching in the audience cried when I sang because she knew how anxious I had been and was so proud I'd done it.

It has been my pleasure to have been part of UpStage from its very beginning, and to watch Mandy work so hard and bring out the best in so many children, and more recently adults!

Proud moment was when Aimee sang ‘Castle on a Cloud’, from pushing her through the door into UpStage to singing confidently on her own, amazing 😍

The thing I love the most is spending show weekend with some of my best friends. I love the feeling of being part of something so amazing. But get sad when it's all over.
Liz Morgan - Yateley
UpStage has been a second family for me - a refuge from life when it gets difficult and a place where I have grown up. I've learnt to dance, gained confidence where before I had none, and met friends I will keep for life. I can't thank this group enough for what it has given me.
