You walked into my studio ten years ago with a big smile and an even bigger bow. Today you are moving on as an artist. You showed strength, dedication, confidence, and passion. Through trust, you did things out of your comfort zone and believed in the creative process. You were always willing to take a chance. Together, we experienced a decade of magical moments.
I take pride in my role as your teacher and honored to have been a part of your journey. It was never about the awards or the wins but about the hard work and life lessons. I hope that you leave with a sense of accomplishment, pride and love. I hope that you walk taller, dance larger and continue to live your best life.
I have never grown closer to a student than and I have with Olivia. I saw you a reflection of myself. Thank you for being you. For always smiling and giving your art all that you had. You are a role model to your team and our younger dancers. You not only make me proud, but you inspire me.
Welp, The years have passed far to quickly. As you continue on this dance adventure, I will continue to be your biggest fan! To see you go after your dreams with an unwavering dedication and passion is such an amazing thing to witness.
With my whole heart, I wish you the world and I love you!
