It is so nice to be back in classes with the students. As a teacher, I don’t realize how much I miss the dancers over the summer. It is such a privilege to work with so many smart and talented students. A new pre-school ballet student, Ariel, when meeting her teacher Ms. Ann said to her, “I will try my very best.” It was a really sweet moment. The staff cherishes these moments. We are busy with our lesson plans and selecting music to ensure that this year will be a great one.
