Message from Miss Misty
Have you seen the hearts?! I was in awe when I entered the studio the other day and saw all of the hearts around the viewing windows on the main floor of the studio. And, when I read what they said....my heart about exploded out of my chest! "I love that I am unique." "I am a good friend." "I love my family." "Dance makes me feel loved." THIS is why we do this. To help kids learn to love themselves and others well - all through something they love - dance! Enjoy the rest of this month and "Spread the Love!" - Miss Misty Lown, Owner
