At the end of each year we try to find a way to express to her the wide reaching impact she has on our girls. We explain that what we appreciate about dancing class with her studio is not just the high quality teaching of the dance but the great influence that she is having on the girls as unique individuals striving to do their best in all areas of their life. Thankyou Debbie-Lyn!”
