Still blown away by working with the amazing students at Academy of Performing Arts, Alma, Michigan at Alma Summer Dance Fest! Feeling mighty proud that we have such incredible students in mid-Michigan!

Laura and I want to express our deep gratitude for your involvement with our show. Your dances had elegance and beauty. Without the APA, the show would have been missing that one piece that glues everything together. We thank all of the girls for helping out. Wowsers! The audience loves you and so do we.
Kathy Francis, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was extremely teary eyed right after I introduced your dancers and Laura as we appeared in the last performance on Sunday. You provided expertise and skill and talent everywhere. I hope this has been a good thing for everyone. It has for us. Thank you!

A wonderful teaching experience! Positive, nurturing atmosphere that services the complete dancer. The students were focused and committed to the learning process, stretching their skills and vocabulary to the next level..

It has been very rewarding to have been a part of the scene at APA. Thank you so much for sharing such a gifted and welcoming community of dancers and families. I have sincerely enjoyed being a part of their lives! Thank you for your generosity, for your autonomy, for your trust, your guidance, for allowing instructors to try crazy things on the students, and finally for caring so much about the students and always, uncompromisingly choosing the path that will help them to grow. Thank you! I look forward to another year!
