REVIEWS OF Oconee Youth School of Performance IN Georgia

Michael Peck

We have had our 3 children at OYSP for 13 years. It has been their second home and we could not be more thankful. If your child wants to perform, they will have many good opportunities at OYSP. More importantly, your child will make many good friends and be supported by the faculty. This loving environment was created by Shane and Terra. It's as true today as it was 13 years ago.

I grew up training and performing at OYSP and OYP and later taught and directed there. Owners Terra and Shane have built something really special—a place that not only offers superior performing arts training and opportunities to perform at a high level to hundreds of children, but also a supportive, inclusive community that I and many other former students continue to think of as a “second home.”

Melinda DeMaria

As our daughter is about to begin her senior year of high school it seems like a perfect opportunity to reflect on her time in school and her activities. Her primary activity outside of school has been dancing with OYSP and doing the shows since she was in kindergarten! When it came time for our second daughter to find her path she truly wanted to have the opportunities afforded by OYSP/OYP! Both of our girls have grown as dancers, singers and performers but also learned tremendous time management skills, loyalty, how to receive feedback and how to be a friend. Their scope of friends spans many counties who each bring many experiences to the table to help our girls grow. The staff at OYSP/OYP have been compassionate, caring and most willing to meet the girls where they were with their skill and push them appropriately to grow to the levels where they can be successful and proud of the work they present on the stage. For our family, this has been a wonderful place to be!

None of my teachers were very nice to me here, and I am at Alice Depass studios now and my new dance studio definitely feels more like home. But I do have friends who are in the company here and say they have had a better experience.

Jordan Savannah Richey

OYSP is no doubt the best place to send your kids for all things dance and musical theater! I took classes here and was a member of the company for seven years and now work for the studio. It has been the best place to dance and work. The staff is incredibly talented and so hardworking. Cannot recommend this place strongly enough!

Sayward Johnson

I am so proud to be part of the oysp family! I have taught dance for them for the last three years, and my daughter is part of the dance company. She also has participated in many of the musical theater performances! Never have I met a more talented and caring group of kids and teachers! We love oysp!

Melissa Martin

We have been attending oconee youth school performance for many years. This includes summer camps, classes, shows and participating in dance and musical theater company. We have never experienced anything but kindness and warmth. The training is stellar, and my kids have always had a fabulous experience! We have been in this program for over 12 years, and have no intentions of leaving until my youngest graduates from high school! Thank you Shane and Terra for your commitment to our kids!

Claire Vogel

I danced and did musicals here throughout middle and high school. I can truly say that they shaped me into the person I am today. I received training that prepared me to perform professionally, and was mentored by teachers who knew and cared about me personally. I made life long friends and cultivated a love and respect for performance that I don’t think I could have gotten anywhere else!

Sharron Hannon

For 20+ years, I've watched my son and daughter-in-law pour their hearts and souls into sharing the performing arts with young people in the surrounding area through OYSP and its sister organization, Oconee Youth Playhouse. It has been so amazing to watch them pursue their passion and to see the magic they work with the hundreds of kids who have come through the doors of their studio every year over those two decades! And now I get to see my grandsons take part in classes, dance and musical theater company and shows with OYP...they love every minute of it and so do I!!

Kim Arenas

All three of my girls have been a part of OYSP and OYP for over 15 years. We have had the best experience and love all that they have to offer: classes, camps, shows, competition dance ... we have been a part of it all!!! My 9 year old spends about 12 hours a week there and she still wishes she could be there more! The teachers are so loving and so talented and so gifted in the way they teach and interact with all the children.

Love, Love Love our OYSP family!!!! We have nothing but amazing things to say about the teachers, learning, and environment of OYSP. My kids have been challenged and loved on from the moment we walked in the doors! Truly is a second home to our family!

Stacy Cail

It's hard to write anything but a glowing review for Oconee Youth School of Performance. Shane and Terra Hannon, the Artistic Directors/Owners, have proven themselves especially gifted in training up young actors, dancers, and singers since its opening almost 20 years ago. There is really no other place quite like it that does what it does the way that it does in Oconee or any of its surrounding counties. If you have a child who wants to take recreational classes or one who wants to train for Broadway and beyond, they will learn from outstanding teachers including the long-time Musical Director, Rachel Townes. Over the years I have seen OYSP students thoroughly entertain their community with their performances in their annual Spring Showcase, in regional dance and theater competitions, as well as in dozens and dozens of professional quality broadway musical shows produced by OYSP's sister company, Oconee Youth Playhouse. As a parent of a previous OYSP Musical Theater Company student, I can personally say OYSP really is the best place to make like-minded friends while you make life long memories. <3

Meredith Dillard

I am so thankful that we found Oconee Youth School of Performance! Growing up in a dance studio I never thought that my daughter would have all the opportunities she has with OYSP in one place. She is not only trained in dance but also in musical theater and voice. There is so much variety offered here it is easy to find the right class for your child. Our daughter loves all her classes and has made some amazing friendships. From the recitals to the competitions each year we see growth in each of her performances. We love Oconee Youth School of Performance!

Vonda Woodall

My daughter loves her OYP and OYSP family! She always has a positive experience at their summer camp and has learned so much from their dance and musical theater teachers! We highly recommend it!

Cheryl Slayden

My granddaughter has been involved with this studio for several years. She has received excellent training and many opportunities to experience competition as well as on stage performances. The studio has well trained instructors and an efficient operating staff. Many of their former students have gone on to acting and dancing colleges and employment. Having years of experience with her mother's own involvement in various studios, I can honestly say you will not regret participation with the outstanding OYSP.

Moonlight K

have never had such a horrible experience. Not only was my child racially discriminated against, she was bullied by a group on stage and the staff was terrible at dealing with this situation. I don't know how these people were raised, but I would definitely NEVER EVER ALLOW my child or anyone I know to ever attend . Shows to show people are very fake all reassurances about child safety are not done to the fullest potential. Its fake attitude. Do not attend if you DON'T want to experience discrimination or bullying. FAKE.

Robin Mayo

Both of my children have been involved with OYP and OYSP at different levels over the last several years. With encouragement from instructors and fellow students my daughter was able to push her limits and experience things that she never would have tried on her own, including singing a solo on stage. Our family is thankful for the influence this organization has had in our lives!

Suzanne Voyles

Our daughter loved/loves being a member of the OYSP/OYP family! Moving to a new area as a middle schooler came with its challenges so we were so happy to be welcomed into the OYSP/OYP community. As a former student and now as a staff member, the studio will always be the place where our daughter feels she belongs, the place where she had so much fun singing, dancing and acting with friends and where the directors and teachers genuinely cared for her as an individual.

Love being a student at OYSP! It has been an amazing benefit in my life, I always feel welcomed and loved. It is genuinely a family and a home to me. OYSP delivers a fun and inviting atmosphere that anyone would enjoy being a part of.
