Happy 20th Birthday to the Shenandoah Academy of Dance 
When I began this journey 20 years ago, it was honestly meant to be a hobby. I wanted a place where I could teach classical ballet the way I wanted it taught ... to those who chose to study with me.

I didnt recruit from other schools. In fact, I started with less than a handful of students with the idea that I would always keep my studio small enough to know each and every dancer by name and would always know exactly how to encourage them to be their best .. because I wanted to be sure to know every dancer who walked through my doors. 

20 years later .. third location .. a full studio schedule .. my home away from home.  The Shenandoah Academy of Dance isn't the biggest studio in our area but it is an incredible place to be.  I can be proud of dancers who have gone on to earn dance degrees from prestigious college dance programs, went on to teach ballet to the next generation, who have successfully broken into a professional ballet performance career and those who chose to use their extensive ballet training to become hard working, focused, disciplined and dedicated adults in other fields of choice ... 

Oh ... and I still know every single one of my students ... 

Here's to the next 20 years ...
