Each week in May we will be featuring one of our Graduating Seniors! This week is Ariana Kimball💜.
Hi i’m Ariana and i’ve been dancing at Impressions for 12 and a half years. This coming fall I will be attending Fitchburg State and majoring in their nursing program. In my free time I like to Dance, workout, hang out with friends and family, and eat chipotle. I am so excited to start this new journey but devastated to end this one i’ve been on for so long. All good things must come to an end though. Thank you Impressions for the best 12 and a half years!! You practically became my second home. It’s been unforgettable💜 @arianaakimball #iaod16 #wewillmisshersomuch #flylittlebird #quarantineruinedmyfinaldanceseason
Some of the best parenting advice I ever received was: "When it rains, play in the rain."
There are ways of making the best out of any situation, this one included.
We can make the COVID-19 crisis into a moment that will live vividly in our kids' memories, so that in other times of uncertainty they'll recall fondly how their family pulled together and made the best of things, and they'll be able to do the same.
And if you like this list, you'll love our free weekly e-Newsletter. Sign up now, we'll get through this as a community!

••PAST AND PRESENT DANCERS/ DANCE PARENTS••
I’m not sure if you know just how much dance teachers think about our students when we’re not together, but it’s a lot! We have spent so many hours with them that it’s hard not to consider them our own and we miss them! 😭
So do this dance teacher a favor - If I have taught your dancer or you have danced at my studio in the past or am presently teaching your dancer post a pic of us below or even just a dance pic!
I miss you all so much 😭💜
Massachusetts State Police
Workout with a Trooper
Attention parents, guardians and kids! Looking for a positive (and socially distant) activity for children whose schools are closed? Want to do some fun with calisthenics based on the bodyweight exercises that Massachusetts State Troopers do? Want some enjoyable physical activity young people can do at their own pace, in their own homes? Come here to our MSP page today (Monday, April 13) at 11:30 a.m. and join members of the MSP Academy’s Fitness Unit as we kick off Workout With A Trooper! And keep joining us for new workouts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday through the end of June.
This program is thanks to the partnership between the Massachusetts State Police and the State Police Association of Massachusetts.
We hope to see you there online!
Happy Easter from our dancing family to yours! 🐰 🐣💜
