  • Our Dance Families Thoughts

    My daughter started dancing with you just a few months after her third birthday. She is now 18. Denise, I can't thank you enough for being her "mom away from mom" all of these years. Dance is the greatest joy in her life. Whenever I drop her off, I know she is going to a place where she is loved!
