This is so fantastic.  Thanks for sharing.  The author taught my DDs when they were little bitty dancers.  She's a fabulous teacher and person.

So good.  I am so thankful for my dd's teachers.  They have taught her so much that will translate into many areas of her life, not just dancing.

I have some students I'd like to send this to.

My granddaughter has also been blessed with a wonderful teacher - who is painfully pushing her forward and upward where she can have even more!  I am so grateful for her generous and unselfish support of my granddaughter throughout her years of excellent training -  and was the first to say "it's time to move on and up!  I sent this on to my DgD as a reminder - an to never forget any of her teachers.  Each as given of themselves to put together the puzzle - and they should each and all share in the satisfaction!
