Dear Pegasus dance families,
This dance season has been like no other, and we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude to YOU, for believing in the transformative power of dance. Through thick and thin—through the unpredictable nature of living through a pandemic—you have allowed your child to dance; to soak up the benefits of movement, self-expression, teamwork, and social-emotional growth. We are grateful for you!
When so many parts of our dancers’ lives were inconsistent, you kept this door open for them. You were willing to take the necessary steps to make dance possible, whether it was changing up your schedule, wearing masks, waiting in your car, adapting to an outdoor classroom, or going virtual. We know these are not small sacrifices! But we are thankful beyond measure that we have been able to continue to serve your family.
We did it! We finished our season and school year with our Showcase Watch Party and it was truly Magical! This Monthly Minute is a recap of my Showcase opening, as I feel it is worth saying again!
This season we have used our imagination and celebrated each and every spark, every glimmer, every child and the magic we find all around us. We have been stretched to rethink the way we live, work, play, dance and interact with each other.
But as I said a year ago, how we walk through this together, encouraging and giving our children confidence and how we model resilience will matter most. We do what we do for our kids and our belief that the arts have the ability to change lives. I am confident that we will look back with pride, and realize how this time has taught us many skills, patience, resilience and the ability to figure things out to name just a few. True to form we are dancers, we are creative thinkers, we know how to choreograph a solution!
