“The communication between the students and the staff has been a wonderful resource. I have felt seen and heard and accepted through this program and that is very rare in the world of dance as I’ve known it. This ability to communicate has helped open my mind to many positive changes within myself and my dancing and I’m so very grateful for this program.”
