My Students

My students love to dance! They are eager to learn various genres of dance and performance and audience etiquette. Of course, they also love performing!

The kids feel such a sense of accomplishment when they've finally figured out a step or a dance move!

The best part of my job is seeing their faces and hearing their delight when they "get it."

I've had several dancers pursue dance as a career as a result of being involved in the dance program at our school. I feel such a great sense of pride in my students.

My Project

The duffel bag is going to replace the current tackle box we use, which is broken and is bulky for the girls to haul from place to place.

We are often in noisy areas where it makes it difficult to hear instructions, and the voice amplifier will enable my dancers to hear me in the parking lot and at football games.

The wireless headset is going to be helpful in the gym, when I'm at the top of the bleachers and I need to give instruction.

The ability to hear the director is the most important thing when it comes to saving time and having success.

Our school district was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey. There are still many repairs to school buildings and equipment that have to be made, but is a slow process because of the amount of damage and the amount of money it takes.
