It Is Written

I would like to take this time to personally invite each of you to our 5th annual celebration of dance. This year the celebration will be held on Saturday, May 19th at 5:00pm in the Seby Jones Auditorium on the campus of St. Augustine’s College. This recital is extra special for me as it marks my 10th year teaching the girls, and as many of you have already heard, this year also marks my last. Of course, this wasn’t an easy decision, as these girls have been a vital part of my life since I was 16 years old. Every Saturday morning, it’s been me and them. Them and Me! Me and My Babies!  (They’d kill me if they knew I called them babies LOL) The last year and a half of high school, the 4 years I spent at college and since I’ve entered the “real world” those girls have been there every step of the way. I’ve said it time and time again, they’ve definitely been my distraction from destruction. No matter what was going on, I knew I had them. I’d been going back and forth about this decision for about a year before I decided to turn in my letter of resignation. Teaching them was definitely a dream come true, however I must now focus on achieving other dreams.  Obtaining a Masters degree has been a dream of mine since I entered college and I am more than ready to see that dream transpire.  I think the hardest part of this was seeing the looks on their faces as I shared my decision with them. I just hope my decision has shown them that no matter how hard it may be, you can never stop reaching for your dreams; and once one dream has been accomplished it’s okay to celebrate for a moment, then it’s time to start working on the next. Dance has been my crutch for MANY years, so if I’m 100% honest it’s a little scary to step away. Surprisingly, I haven’t been emotional, I think I’m just so busy with planning everything that I don’t think it’s hit me yet. However, I’m sure that night will be filled with a couple…okay maybe more than a couple tears. Hopefully, looking into the audience and seeing the faces of my family, friends and loved ones will be just what I need to help keep it together. 


I know some of you often ask me if I’m dancing….the answer is….YES! I will be doing a couple group pieces and a farewell solo. Oh and my mom also has a very special part in the program…but shhhh don’t tell her I told you 🙂


Tickets go on sale April 14th. $5 in Advance and $7 at the door. Children 4 and under are free.

 Hope to see you all there
