2017-2018 School year in the rear view mirror
and starting New School Year on August 27th
It is lovely to see exhausted and happy students of ours Coming Back from Summer Intensives, Competitions, from visiting their families abroad. To grow into an interesting dancer with something to say in dance, one needs exposure to elements of life, to enjoy the sweetness of winning by experiencing defeat.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”, Dr. Seuss said.
That said, it is great to see students coming back and new students joining in. Please make sure the new students feel welcome, introduce yourselves and other. And make new friends.
