I just wanted to give you an update from Interlochen.  I am really enjoying my time here... I was really happy to receive one of the 8 solos. I am in a large tap number as well as the core group of jazz dancers. The dancing is rather challenging but I am keeping up thanks to all of my great PAA training!
Thanks again for all of the ways that you have helped and supported me!

- Jana, 14 year old ballet & tap student

Thank you so much for a wonderful semester with ballet and the wonderful recital tonight.  I thought it couldn't have been more perfect and I felt secure with your check-in/check-out system that my daughter was safe!  Thank you for providing this program.  It's been exciting to watch Katie grow with confidence each week and try new things!

- Mom of Katie, 3 year old ballet student

Thank you for all you do and have done for Kirstie. The love of dance and  self-expression you have instilled in her will be a large part of her life forever. The confident glow on her face as she feels music displays your fingerprint. Forever grateful...

- Mom of Kirstie, Graduate of ballet, jazz & hip-hop programs

Please know that you are doing wonderful things with your studio and I am proud to say that I was part of it. I will definitely be back as often as I can, and keep you updated on my Disney adventures.
