Thank You to all our Elite Families!
Jul 1, 2020
As we are about to take our summer break, we wanted to take this time to thank our Elite families for all your hard work this season. Although we aren't really done, as our recital and comp season are postponed until we can really showcase our students' efforts properly, we wanted to take this pause to highlight all of you.
To our teachers, choreographers and demonstrators:
Although you always bring your best, you have really raised the bar this year. You are true innovators. You kept our students learning and training despite our inability to be in the studio together, right from the start. It was so awesome to watch and be a part of.
So, to Ms. Mindy, Ms. Paige, Ms. Courtney, Ms. Jenna, Ms. Allie, Mr. Spencer, Ms. Carly, Ms. Amyrah, Ms. Lauren, Ms. Emma, Mr. Hayden, Ms. Charlotte, Ms. Bridgette, Ms. Ragen, Ms. Rachel, Ms. Grace, Ms. Mikayla, Ms. Logan, Ms. Allison & Ms. Jamie, you are truly special people and we were so lucky to have you working with our students.
To our parents:
You sacrificed your living rooms, your offices, your basements, (and your wifi) and transformed your houses into makeshift dance spaces. We thank you for letting us into your homes and working together with us to keep our students doing what they love.
To our students:
It was so wonderful to see you working so hard, even though the best part of the year is still to come later. Your dedication to your craft, your determination and drive is so amazing to watch. We are very proud of you. We can't wait to showcase all your hard work.
This has been hardest on you. You have had your 'whys' taken away. The reason why you get up in the morning, what you look forward to, what you dream about, the future you see, all on hold. The things you looked forward to have all been delayed. And when you asked 'when?', all we could say was 'later'. But, as we re-open our country, better days are coming and your hard work will pay off. We can't wait to see you show it off to the world!
This has been an unprecedented time and we, like all of you, are excited to see things start getting back to normal and see your smiling faces again. Despite this unplanned break in the season, we want to say that we are so proud of all of you and all your hard work. We'll see you in the fall!
Enjoy your break, dancers. You've earned it!
