” I am the father of one of your Pre-Ballet students. I attended the Grand Finale performance (1995) last Sunday, and I left feeling thrilled and impressed by  the show….Any regrets I had about such an expenditure of time quickly became a distant memory upon seeing our littler girl on stage, beaming with enthusiasm and joy…Thank you for your devotion to the students, for instilling a strong work ethic and presenting a first-rate production.”

– Mr. Smith, Father of former student

 

“I realized that you have likely created one of the better studios in the United States. What you have given, created and inspired is truly moving and we are so fortunate to be the recipients of your talent, your time and your care. Our most memorable teachers are always the ones who expect the most and guide us to the places we might not otherwise go and help us deliver personal best. Thank you for creating these lessons for our girls.”

– Ann North
