Give the Gift of Happy Memories
September 18, 2019   |   MaryM
Something incredibly important to me is making the studio a secure and safe environment for my students and families. I realize that sadly, some of my students go through hard situations involving family, home-life, bullying at school, and medical issues. Every day I work to make dance class a consistent bright spot in their lives. I affirm to my students their self-worth regardless of their dance ability or popularity at school. I interact lovingly and kindly with my students, hoping that they will grow to trust that I am there for them and care about them.
For every show, I painstakingly go over music, costumes, and choreography so that childhood is upheld. I see my students feel confident and beautiful in their costumes, sing their recitals songs with gusto, and have fun doing age-appropriate dances. Giving the gift of dance gives the gift of precious, happy, childhood memories.
