Elizabeth and Melina N

I am so thankful that Melina has found a place to dance that makes her feel safe and loved, encouraged and supported...all the time.  She loves dancing for Krissie and the DMA staff and, I feel, works extra hard for this reason.  The teacher/student connection and relationship is the most important criteria when it comes to learning and also trying new things.  With trust, love and support I feel children can achieve beyond expectation.  The DMA gives that to Melina and every other dancer that walks through the door.  Melina also feels cared for by her fellow students, particularly the older girls who seem to really go out of their way to make the younger dancers feel appreciated. No matter how many times I watch a particular dance...I am moved EACH AND EVERY TIME.  I am thankful our home for dance is DMA!
