My daughter was so energized and excited by the workshop.  She came home each day sharing the music with me along with the ballet, jazz, and contemporary lessons.  Having a mentor was uniquely inspiring for her to focus on the feedback and encouragement from and older dancer who she looked up to.  She spent all spring and summer looking forward to it and you exceeded her expectations.  Thanks!
