"Thank you for another amazing performance! This year was different and exciting and you both handled all the challenges with your usual grace and determination. Every performance, our family feels so grateful to be a part of it. The performance allows us to look back and reflect on how much our children have grown as people and dancers. Thank you for being such a special part of that." Joe & Karen Podurgiel
"We are incredibly thankful for your example of so many things - strong virtue, how to remain polite in difficult times, how to work hard and be thorough, and, of course, how to cherish the beauty of dance! Thank You!" Robert & Bonnie Tompkins
"Many, many thanks for another wonderful year. My daughter adores you and is so lucky to have you for a teacher. I am privileged to be a mom of a dancer under your guidance."
"I just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful year of dance. All your work makes a great impact on the lives of your students. It has been so nice for my daughter to have a place far away from the "dramas" (as she calls it) of 6th grade. The Dance Extension is a place that asks alot of her physically and mentally which is so good for her self esteem. It is such a nurturing and positive influence on her life. I can't say thank you enough!"
"After watching class during Take a Peek Week in January, I was able to
see how well you run the class and the gift you have to engage the
students' imaginations. You are a fabulous teacher and your patience was
evident. My daughter really enjoyed class. We can't thank you enough."
"It is hard to know where to start when trying to thank people for such incredible demonstrations of kindness and generosity. When the gifts were delivered to B.P. a few days before Christmas, we were blown away. Your students, families and teachers are obviously kind, caring and selfless people. To reach out to children they don't know is incredible. You truly made a difference to us all."

"The contributions to the Holiday Basket program were truly amazing and made a memorable holiday for 53 Waterford families and 118 children. Without the support of the community the program would not be popssible. Thank you for your support. All donation are important ones!"

"I would like to personally thank you for participating in Project Polar Express. We were able to match all of our families to sponsors a few weeks before the holidays and this could not have happened without you. Your kindess creates the magic that encompasses Project Polar Express. You have helped strengthen families and provided hope and happiness. Your commitment to serving others and your dedication to Child & Family Agency's mission is, to say the least, amazing."
