“Hi this is Judge XXX from this past weekend! Now that I’m not standing on a stage in front of hundreds I’d like to take a moment to truly thank your studio for the impact you made on me. We lost our cousin to suicide June 1st seven years ago. I’ve always wanted to do a dance about this issue but never knew the right way to handle it because of it being such a personal thing for me. Your piece ("Gone Too Soon") was so beautifully done and made a forever impact on my life. I can’t thank you enough for your delicate delivery and beautiful approach to such a sad but real subject matter. Your sweet dancers may have saved a life with that dance and it’s such a significant and important message. So, thank you once again, for being the kind of studio I stand behind and fully support and believe in. You’re doing it right!!
Miss Beth, Thank you for being so wonderful with Stephanie as well as all of the other kids. I am so thankful that we found you. Stephanie has learned so much from you and has become a beautiful dancer because of you. I see the way you are with all of the kids and I can see how happy it makes all of them to hear you say what a great job they did and give each and every kid a hug. As a Mom it touches my heart to see the kindness and caring you show all of them. All of our kids looked great not only on stage but also so well behaved in the audience while they cheered on their teammates. You, Miss Alyssa and all of the other teachers should be so proud of yourselves for being so wonderful to all of us. Have a great day and God bless all of you. Erika : )
A very special thank you to our seniors last night! Not only were they amazing all weekend in dance, but they took it upon themselves to invite a girl from another studio to sit with them on stage for awards. She was attending the competition by herself and when she won top solo, our dancers stood up, applauded for her and rushed to hug her after her big win! What a very proud moment for all of us in the audience. To us, that's what it's all about. Our parents, younger students and teachers have AMAZING ROLE MODELS in these dancers and should be very proud. Please take the time to pass this thank you on to them. They truly represent what Generations Of Dance stands for!
Although Sam is not a graduating Senior, leaving our dance family is by far the hardest part of our move to AZ for her. I have watched both her and her teammates grow incredibly as dancers and as young women. It seems like yesterday that they couldn't stay "in sync" with routines such as Movin' on Up, or were just mastering double turns while being mermaids behind "waves" made by a parent. It has been incredible journey to watch. Her teammates truly are her sisters and she loves them very much. This has been such an amaziingly successful Regional season and I am thankful that she will have these incredible memories to help her with the transition. Thank you so much to all of our teachers for fostering the talents our children posses. Through the ups and downs of the past 6 years I have witnessed these girls develop a bond so strong that that will stay with them.
"I just wanted to say good job and how proud I am to be part of this group. When problems came up it was our studio prop dads that climbed on the roof and found a solution, it was our teachers that set up the video in the hallway for the kids, our parents that’s took the high road when some nasty comments were made and our owners that made sure the girls congratulated the other teams at awards like good sports should. I almost forgot to mention it was OUR kids that did an awesome job all weekend, on and off the stage. Last year when we first talked about competition dance in my house I was dreading every minute. Now I look forward to it. And for all the reasons i mentioned above. Those are the values i want my daughter to have. I’ve made some great friends and awesome memories already. I can’t wait to see where we go from here! Thanks again and good job.
