Parent Testimonial

To whom it may concern,

Hi! I am writing as a parent of two children ages 3 3/4 and 5 who have regularly attended different dance classes over the last three years with Miss Jenn and Miss Kasey. I wanted to express how awesome both of these women are.

Both of my kiddos can be hard to motivate to change and do the dances and exercises. They both started at 2, when let's be honest most kids have a hard time following along and paying attention for longer periods of time. Both Miss Jenn and Miss Kasey have been extremely patient and extremely kind to my kiddos... Both women are super great with the kids and super talented with great energies...

I am also impressed with the dance recital they put on every year! Miss Jenn and Miss Kasey deal with a lot of classes and a lot of different ages every day preparing for the recital and do so with such grace, patience, and kindness. They come up with so many different dances for so many classes, (even break dancing!) and pick out the cutest outfits and music for each number! It's amazing to see it all come together!! I don't know how Miss Jenn does it! Hats off to her and Miss Kasey and the other teachers who help make it happen! I am always impressed on the day of the recital that they keep all of those kiddos organized and ready for the show, again all while being kind and patient and energetic. You can really see that Miss Jenn and Miss Kasey love what they do.

They also run the dance summer camp together and do so well with lots of different littles, making every day fun!

So, I just wanted to write and say I am very thankful for and impressed with what these ladies do for all of our children every day and for the splendid job they do every year at the recital. I hope they get the proper credit! Love them!

We will continue to come to the dance academy and look forward to dancing with Miss Jenn and Miss Kasey many times more!

Thank you for your time,
Kymmie M.
