What a wonderful year we’ve had together with our students and staff. It truly takes a village to prepare for six wonderful recital shows and we are so grateful to everyone involved. Thanks to you, there were over 600 beautiful lights shining on this stage! To the parents and families sacrificing of your finances and countless hours sitting in the lobbies or your vehicles while your dancers train – we see you! To the dance moms and dads dropping off homecooked meals to our older dancers late at night – we see you! To the grandparents, family friends and car-pool warriors helping the students get to classes – we see you! To the students doing homework and studying in between classes – we see you! To the teachers and assistants that are spending countless hours on lesson plans, choreography, mentoring students, and going above and beyond – I see you!
We truly appreciate your sacrifices to see these beautiful lights shine at recital and all throughout the year! This is my 10th recital as the director of JSOD and I could not be more grateful for the countless blessings that God has bestowed on our studio. In 2010 we had 50 different dances in recital over 2 shows. This year we have 155 different dances performing over 6 shows!
God is so faithful and I never could have imagined blessings of this magnitude 10 years ago when I stepped out in faith for this incredible journey. We have big plans and dreams for this next year that we are not quite ready to reveal yet, but I would love to invite you to pray for our studio and for God’s wisdom in making future decisions for His glory!
