About Us

Stage One Productions was created by Greg Massay and Dee Massay. Greg and Dee, after working in the dance industry for more than 40 combined years, decided they could create a better dance competition. Thus Stage One was born. Greg and Dee strive to create a competition that provides the dancer with a positive, constructive environment. They wish to create a relaxed, professional and well-run atmosphere especially for the teachers and directors. And they work to offer parents a comforting, safe place to encourage their children while watching them succeed.

Over the last 20 years, Stage One Productions has grown from just an idea to one of the industry’s leading companies. Stage One is known throughout the competition circuit for its friendly and helpful staff and its relaxed and encouraging atmosphere. Greg and Dee are proud to bring their award-winning competition to a city near you this year in hopes that you will choose to take part in the magic of Stage One Productions.
