Winners at Dance Educators of America
              National & Regional Competitions
  All the awards were just icing on the cake.  The dance schools we competed
  against are some of the VERY best in the New England area.  They made us
  work harder to do our Very best!!!!
   What was MOST important
however at these  Prestigious competitions were the bonds of friendship that were tightened and the camaraderie formed that will last a lifetime.  Also, the dance workshops given by master teachers was:
                 Dance 10 - knowledge gained - priceless!!!!

   Thank you, parents, as always, for all your support and graciousness for
helping our family of students realize the dream of the artists they are becoming!
