Emma was pushed to the limits this year and faced every obstacle with a can-do attitude. It was our first year working together and her determination really impressed me. Every free moment she had at the studio, she was working on every critique she received. This solo got better and better every time I watched her perform. The judges awarded her the “Movement” award to acknowledge her quality of movement and not focusing so much on tricks. Proud choreographer moment! Congratulations and thank you for bringing this solo to life 🤍 🎉

Molly 🙌🏼 it’s truly been a true pleasure to work with this soloist the last few years. She left it all on the stage and was grounded with a calm quality to her movement which made watching her so enjoyable. She received a solid gold award for her solo “Saint.” Big congratulations to you! 👏🏼🤍🩰🏆

I’ve really loved working with this dynamic duo this year. They performed their duet “The Other Side” for the last time at nationals and I couldn’t have asked for more from their performance. They compliment one another so well and work wonderfully together. This did not go unnoticed by the judges as they won a special award for their passion, performance + dedication. They scored 3rd in their category and 7th place overall on top of a solid gold award. Congratulations ladies! 👏🏼🏆🤍🩰

These two girls have made me so proud and brought me to tears when they performed their duet, “Home” for the last time. Before they went on stage, they said to me “we want to get a special award for this!” I looked at them and said, “well, you’re going to have to make it pretty special then!” That they did! They won a judges special award for their elegance + grace on stage, a solid gold award, 1st place in their category and to top it off they placed 3rd overall. Congratulations girls! 👏🏼🏆🤍🩰

Yesterday was a special day ✨ not only was it the first time in 2 years that the students at got to step on an official stage, but also the first time I’ve been back at this venue since I was about 10 years old (and hasn’t changed a bit). 🩰 I took a moment to stand back and realize how life has come full circle and let that all sink in. Here’s to recital week 2022! 🤍

Tuesday tricks with Kyra and Emma 🤍👯‍♀️ I love what these two bring to the table 👏🏼 they come to class every week ready to work and are always open to trying something new. 🤍

Dance friends are truly the best friends 💕

I’ve loved working with Lilly and Brooke this year on their duet. They’re best friends in real life and it truly shows when they dance together. That’s something that can’t be taught and it’s because of reasons like this that make me love what I do so much. 🤍

A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams become a reality. 💫

THIS 🙌🏼 I can’t stress this enough. It’s so easy to get into the mindset of being “perfect.” It’s about moving from the inside out. Yes, having the proper technique is extremely important but not every dancer has the same anatomy allowing the amount of flexibility to be the same for everyone. It’s all about being unique, showing your true self, and moving with your heart! That’s what makes a dancer stand out. 🩰

Happy Friday! 🤍
