Thank you for being such a vibrant, selfless, and incredibly talented teacher/choreographer/mentor to me. All that you have introduced me to and taught has been invaluable and has not only affected how I dance and see myself as a performer, but has also impacted how I see myself as a women. Your strength, resilience and passion to help others grow is so admirable and I honestly could not thank you enough for that. As you know, I started off really shy and not very confident at all, but thanks to you and the amazing way you were able to tap into my insecurities and help me regain belief in myself, I have become much more confident and fearless as an individual. You have been so instrumental to my personal development over the last 3 years and I do not take all that you have scarified in order to bring all of us to this point lightly.
