A week ago CSDA held their 2016 recital "Dance Is Our Story". It was perfect in every way! People raved about everything... Costumes, selection of songs, etc. But the biggest compliment of all was parents saying how much they trusted us!!! That they felt safe leaving their child with our backstage helpers. That is by far the nicest compliment I could ever get!!!

It's taken me a while to process how amazing the recital was. In fact, I had quite a post show mini depression going on. But there was no time to be sad, Nationals boot camp started on Monday and so back to work we went!!! And ya know what, I felt better! I wasn't sad I was pumped!! And not just for Nationals, but the year ahead for CSDA!!! I've got big plans and I cannot wait to share them all with you in the weeks to come ❤️

In the meantime, wish your CSDA family good luck as they take to the competition stage one last time this season! It's been an amazing ride and I'm proud of each and every one of them!! And I truly hope to see YOUR face on the team next year❤️❤️❤️

My favorite place to be when my babies dance is off stage right! There is a connection that we share that cannot be explained...their smiles touch my heart and the hugs I get when the run offstage proud of what they've just accomplished is priceless!!!

So here is my view of "Heaven"' from the recital!! Just look at my babies beaming!!! Tomorrow they take to the stage one last time as soloists and I will be waiting in the wings for you with arms and heart wide open ❤️❤️❤️
