Thank you so much for a beautifully planned and organized dance recital (recitals) today!


There is more that I could say but I just can't put it into words the gratitude and appreciation that we have for such a beautiful experience today (and throughout the year!!). 

 

Thanks for a great dance season and we look forward to next year already! (Because what do you do when you get home from a double header dance recital?? Why you play dance recital at home of course!) ☺️

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!

We loved the shows!!

Miss Teresa,
 
Thank you for a great year. K is still enthusiastic about learning to dance and still dreams of being a ballerina. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity you gave her by offering her the scholarship. It made a difference and helped us to be able sign her up for tap, which she also really enjoyed. I also wanted to say that I think you do a good job at hiring teachers for the young girls. Miss Leah, Miss Valentina and Miss Chiara were such wonderful teachers as well as beautiful dancers. They are patient, friendly and their love for what they do is easy to see. The teachers who filled in during competition weeks were also wonderful. I think it makes a big difference in how the young dancers feel about dance classes. 
 
I want to pass along my parents comments as well. My mother was a dancer and dance instructor, and I think she has a fairly critical eye when it comes to dancers. After the show she asked about the two girls that looked like twins, Miss Valentina and Miss Chiara. She was impressed by their foot work and how beautifully they dance. Both she and my dad were impressed with the shows. (We saw the matinee and afternoon shows.) My dad was especially impressed with how nicely everything flowed and how organized it was. 
 
K is already asking to sign up for classes again. I think she would be happy to keep going all summer. So we are looking forward to the next dance season. In the mean time we hope you all have a great summer.

 

Hi Miss Teresa, 

 

Just wanted to give you and the team at PDA a huge shout out for another wonderful recital. We were at the 1:30 pm show and enjoyed every second! I'm sure it was an emotional day for you....you had us in tears! But the joy and love for the studio, teachers, dancers, etc was soo evident. How lucky we are to be a part of that.  It would be wonderful to see our little girl there one day with her 10 year medal!  She absolutely loves dance and loves coming to PDA....she adores Miss Emily and I'm so glad to see she is there again next year. 

 

 Thanks again for a fantastic year and we look forward to camp in July and dancing again in September! Enjoy your summer.

 

 

Hi Miss Teresa, 

 

I just wanted to say what a great show you and the crew put on this past Sunday.  My girls were in the 4:00 show and everything went off without a hitch, and the show was awesome!!  

 

 

 

Miss Teresa, Miss Jennifer, and PDA staff,

 

We wanted to send a huge thank you for all the hard work that you put into the dancing year and recital.  It was so very much appreciated...Happy 10th Anniversary!  We heard so many positive comments from other people during intermission and after the show - please keep up the great work!

 

 

What a wonderful day.  Thank you so much for making our first year in dance a terrific experience.  I have no idea how you all managed to make everything work so smoothly.  Kudos to all that put in the extra time and effort.  It was such a fun matinee performance and we were really happy all year with Mr Ryan and Mr Travis.

 

Hello Miss Teresa,

 

Congratulations on your tenth year in Guelph!

 

Just wanted to say thank you to the PDA team for your hard work in putting up such a wonderful evening for all of us!

 

 It was very well organized and was a pleasure to watch a wide range of students perform. 

 

One year went by so quickly and our daughter  simply had a wonderful learning and growing experience at PDA. 

 

We look forward to another year full of fun and great learning opportunity.

 

Thank you once again!

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!
