When my eldest daughter started dancing ballet at the age of 3, I initially thought that it was just going to be something that she did in preschool for fun. Little did I know that her time at the dance academy would grow into something so wonderful that we truly consider the staff there our second family. The confidence, routine and discipline that they learn are all skills that transfer over to my kids everyday life and has helped them mold into the children they are today. Dance gives my kids a place to explore the arts and just be themselves, giving them happiness and life long friendships.
