Recital Messages from Parents

Hello!  I just wanted to say that PDA did a FABULOUS job at the recital yesterday.  This was our first time at the River Run,  my daughter was in the Second Steps class in the 4pm show, and I wasn't sure what to expect - but you were all so thoroughly organized everything went so smoothly. 


What could have easily been chaos was anything but - We were never left wondering what was going on - it was run very professionally and as such my daughter had a really positive, fun, amazing experience!  We also loved having Miss. Emily as a teacher - she does a really great job with all those young kids.  Again - well done PDA!  We look forward to Pre-Dance in September!


I just wanted to send a thank you to you and everyone who works so hard to make PDA such a great place to dance!  The hours of work that went into such a successful year must be countless and I just wanted you to know we appreciate it. All the bulletins keeping us informed was fantastic. We will be back in the fall and I will be spreading the word that PDA is a wonderful place to dance.


Thank you for making all of the information that was needed (all year and coming to the performance) so easily accessible. Every parent I have talked to has had nothing but wonderful comments to say about the show and their experience with all of you. We had a great year with PDA. The show was great.

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank Miss Teresa, Mrs. Kim and Miss Kim for a wonderful year and fabulous recital dances!  All 6 of my daughter’s dances were a pleasure to watch and it looked so beautifully choreographed and well rehearsed. Most of all, the girls looked like they genuinely enjoyed the dance and each other.  So, thank you again and have a wonderful summer! 


We are so proud of all our dancers and the two phenomenal shows they put on May 27th!! We cannot thank the dancers, parents, teachers, volunteers, and River Run staff enough for all they did to make the day run so smoothly and be so enjoyable to all! Both shows went by so quickly - you were prepared and you danced your hearts out!!  All the teachers are talking about how PDA Proud we are of you!!!! It was a pleasure to teach each and everyone of our dancers and we cannot wait to see them all next season.


Have a safe and happy summer PDA!!



Dear Miss Teresa,


I wanted to thank you and your entire team for the great work you do all year, but especially at rehearsal time. My six-year old daughter may not become a famous dancer but the experience of working all year to perfect a performance, of being on stage despite the jitters and of hearing the applause of family and community that support you is an important element of her development. You, your staff and volunteers play an important part in empowering young girls and boys and I just wanted to say thank you!
