This month, we asked staff to share a highlight from the Fall semester and what they’re looking forward to in the Winter/Spring semester!
“The Fall Semester has brought so many firsts for all of my classes, starting with watching our Baby Gym students mastering their first steps, to our newest Gymnastics Team members competing for the first time.
As we enter the Winter/Spring Semester, I am excited for the Pre-Team and Intermediate classes to continue back handspring development on floor, learning back hip circles and squat-ons on the bars, strengthening their handstand flatbacks on vault, and developing strong handstands on beam.”
-Mary, Gym Director and Coach

“A highlight from the Fall Semester has been working with past students and seeing their growth and maturity through the years. I also feel so fortunate to have students who truly love to dance and are eager to learn and grow as movers.
In the Winter/Spring Semester, I look forward to teaching my students new steps and reinforcing the movement they already know. Some of my classes are already excited for the spring recital and of course the costumes (for the spring concert they get to take their costumes home, which is a big highlight).”
-Katrina, Ballet and Early Childhood Teacher

“I am so proud that the students are beginning to learn the basic technical positions for both ballet and modern dance. It makes me happy when students tell me about their favorite part of their day at the beginning of class.
I’m looking forward to teaching an additional ballet class on Wednesday afternoons and meeting the new students. I am also excited to start new contemporary and ballet phrase work.”
-Rachel, Ballet and Contemporary Dance Teacher

“A highlight from the Fall Semester is being introduced to the team and all the wonderful people (our students and grown-ups) who make up this awesome organization.
I’m looking forward to the Winter Dance Concert and seeing all the hard work put in by our students, teachers and staff to ensure that the show is a success.”
