There are times when no matter how we say it, the words of a happy dancer and their family simply say it better. We are proud of what we do, and are grateful for the permission to post this letter for you to see as well. Enjoy~
Words from a happy parent…
My daughter is “new” to the Northland School of Dance (NSOD) family. We joined the studio one year ago after learning that her former studio was closing. This came as quite a shock to our little dancer….. her world was ending. So the search for a new place to live her dream began.
Being a former dancer myself, I remembered Northland School of Dance and suggested we go to look into NSOD. Teresa and Corrie offered to hold an informational night for us and for any other dancers that were looking for a new studio. My husband and I went to check it out with our daughter in tow. We left at the end of the meeting without a doubt in our hearts that we had found our new home.
One thing that sticks out in my mind from that meeting was Teresa telling us that this was more than just a dance studio giving lessons in dance. She said:
If all we do is teach your child to dance, than we fail”
She is right. There are life lessons to be learned as well. Teresa, Corrie, and the NSOD staff do a great job doing just that. We have entrusted them in helping teach our child more than just dance.
Looking back over the last year we are grateful for having made that choice. NSOD is wonderful!!! They welcomed us with open arms and I can’t say enough good things about it. The studio is clean. The staff is friendly, helpful, and ORGANIZED! Barb, the studio Office Manager, knew my daughters name within a week and always greets us with a smile! The teachers are AMAZING! Teresa and Corrie are talented and experienced….and it shows. After my daughter had finished up her last performance in the 2012 Northland Year End Production show (YEP), I asked her if she had any regrets about coming to NSOD – She answered, “the only regret I have, is that I didn’t come to Northland sooner”! That statement said it ALL. We love NSOD!
