A Note From The Director
What a wonderful month! We had our Nutcracker and USAIGC Gymnastics Team house showcase meet last weekend. I love seeing our students perform and compete after so much practice and hard work. It’s beautiful to see the progress of these students year to year. One dance student, Abby, featured in the Student Spotlight, that didn’t go on stage last year really beamed on stage and knew all her steps this year. When I recapped the highlights of the show with my students, one of them really captured the essence of the feeling once a show is over. She said that she enjoyed working on the dance and performing, but she is sad that it’s over. I feel the same way. After a big event or performance, it’s not uncommon to feel a let down. I told my students that we will start working on new steps and that we have the Spring Recital to look forward to!
At the end of January, we will be saying goodbye to ballet teacher, Melanie Seastone. Melanie will be moving on after 11 years. She lives out of the city and as her children get older it’s becoming more difficult for her to come in and teach. I have many wonderful memories here with Melanie. We will miss her greatly.
Have a wonderful holiday season and Happy New Year!
