Final Summit Christmas Rehearsals!

This was our last weekend of Christmas Recital rehearsals, it went very well. I have to say that I am very impressed with what a wonderful job the Summit girls have done in preparing their numbers and teaching their classes. They have been given such a short period of time to get their number taught and ready to perform, but what has been most important to me is what has been going on in the classroom. These older girls, learning to use different methods of teaching and use their creativity to choreograph and express themselves through dance. These younger Company girls have had the opportunity to learn different styles of technique, and work together to get their numbers ready to perform. It was almost an emotional thing this weekend to watch it all come together. I have so much appreciation for everyone who has helped make this show come together. I wish everyone participating GOOD LUCK! I couldn't be more proud!!!
