Thank you to everyone who submitted for a leadership position within our team. Terry and I are very grateful to have so many motivated students. This will be a school year unlike any other, and I'll be relying heavily on our team's leadership to keep everyone motivated and positive. It was difficult to choose from all of the amazing candidates, and Terry and I believe having a committee of dancers will provide the most support during online learning and when we return. We hope you'll join us in congratulating the following ladies.
