"Thank you so much for all you have done for me. The lessons of dedication and self-discipline that you have taught me since I was small will certainly carry over into my future life in college and beyond. Your countless dedication to each and every student who walks through that door is something to be admired. The art of dance and self-expression through dance is something beautiful and yall are such amazing examples of how something so simple as a leap across a stage, a single moment in the spotlight, can change a child's life forever. I have many memories at the studio and I shall cherish them always and forever. Yall have a very special place in my heart and my mind. I cannot thank you enough for your persistence, patience, and love when it came to teaching me the magic that is dance at the studio. It has been said that with memories one does not remember days, but moments. My moments of memories shall never leave and I hope that one day I shall be able to pass those memories on to my own ki9ds and have them be inspired by the art of dance. Thank you all for making such an impact in my life and how I see myself."
"Growing up at the "studio" not only taught me discipline, determination and dedication, it helped to shape me into the person I am today. Now having a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Education, I am grateful for my experience at the studio. The studio's amazing faculty taught me the skills and performance qualities needed to be successful in college and in the professional dance world. I fit wasn't for my studio family, I wouldn't be where I am today!"
