A Child in Charge of Herself
Enjoy the newest blog post from Mark Ruhala!
“I was recently in a private voice lesson with a seven year-old who I have had the privilege of working with for a couple years now. When she told me excitedly that she was wearing a special necklace that meant a lot to her at the beginning of the lesson, I acknowledged that I too love essential oils necklaces. Our lesson commenced and we had a wonderful, fruitful, and improved lesson from the recent lessons that were not so focused. When I said then that I thought she might want to perhaps wear that necklace to all her lesson since she did such a strong lesson that day, she corrected me. “It’s not because of the necklace Mr. Mark”. I asked her what it was then. She said, “I thought about how stressed you were last week about how unfocused I was and I decided to change”. I had to just stop for a moment and take in her wisdom and power.” Click here to Read More

Mark Ruhala, Founder and Artistic Director
 In 2004, Broadway and Entertainment veteran Mark Ruhala, along with his wife Celina, founded the Ruhala Performing Arts Center. It was their own personal effort to bring a professional art, dance, and theater arts studio to the Lansing area: an area that Mr. Ruhala has always known as home. As owners and Co-Artistic Directors, Mark and Celina continue to feed their passion and excitement for the arts in molding today’s young minds, bodies, and-in many cases-careers, by sharing their talents and professional experiences with their students. Their enthusiasm is matched only by the passion they both have for the arts, for entertainment, and most of all…for the people they serve.
