“Overall, this entire experience has inspired me to grow further as a dancer, and I learned a lot from the guest teachers to the Artistic Director. I have never met such a great group of dancers, faculty, and staff. They have inspired me on stage, outside of dance, and inside the studio.”
– Paige (2016)
