For DanceWorks to come in made us visualize dance at a professional level, and that not only do you have to be a wonderful dancer on the outside, but a wonderful person on the inside as well. Personality makes a dancer different, and everyone in DanceWorks is different in their own way. They also show the importance of being yourself and letting it shine inside and out. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity.

The assembly was received with enthusiasm by a wide variety of students and faculty due to the variety in the musical selections within the performance. The Athletic Director was wowed by the athleticism and beauty of the music and movement even though he confessed that this was totally out of his realm of experience. It was a big "thumbs up"! Thanks for bringing such amazing artists into our schools.
