New Arrivals!!!


. . . and Staff News 


We are very excited to welcome back Miss Linnea who will be teaching Saturdays.  Miss Linnea practically grew up at PDA, was an Original Member of the Comp Team who had tremendous and outstanding successes throughout her competition career and has taught classes and dance camps at PDA for years.  We know her students will love having such a talented teacher!
Welcome to Miss Isabelle Foley who will be assisting and teaching with Miss Emily on Saturdays this year.  Miss Isabelle is a former instructor at a large studio in Mississauga and a competitive dancer in all styles.  We are thrilled to have her at PDA! 
We also wish to welcome Miss Maddie who will be the Miss Jennifer of the weekends!  We hope everyone at PDA will make her first year at PDA fun and memorable!
There have been so many new arrivals at PDA - Mrs.Kim's baby Zoe and Miss Kim's baby Tyler that we can hardly keep up!  Congratulations to Miss Maegan who was married in a beautiful ceremony at the cathedral in Guelph - what a stunning bride along with her equally stunning sister, PDA dancer Miss Natalie!!  
We are very extremely sorry that Miss Melanie is so busy with school this year that she will only be at PDA occasionally.  It won't be the same without her but we know she will be so successful in her chosen career and we are hoping she will have time to dance with us in the Production this year because we are definitely not ready to say good-bye to her yet (or ever!)
