Thank you so much for awarding our daughter with a scholarship to attend classes at the Dance Academy of Virginia. I have no words to express my gratitude in these difficult times. Dancing is sure making her days lighter and happier. Isabel is a child with a zest for life. She is a happy girl that dances when she’s walking when getting her favorite snack when walking in the park. She uses her body movements to express her deepest emotions - sadness, anger, or frustration. But above all, shed dance, and dance when she is happy."
I could not be more thankful and full of joy when we found that Isabel was awarded the scholarship to dance at the Dance Academy of Virginia. Of course, Isabel’s reaction to it was magical: she danced, and jumped, and ran all over. I do not know what the future holds for Isabel when it comes to dancing. However, I know that being tutored by the fantastic teachers at DAV will make her world bigger, better, and more colorful. Thank you so much, Ms. Horrigan, and all the DAV team. I am optimistic that the experience of dancing at DAV will make Isabel thrive in her dancing endeavors.
