A Note From the Director:
What a glorius day it is to be able to once again perform for an unrestricted theater audience!
I am so very grateful to everyone who helped to make it happen, and for the amazing DFR Dance Parents who juggle schedules and move mountains to ensure their dancers make it to their many ballet classes and rehearsals.
Thank you all from the bottom of my very full heart.
The hard work and dedication of this group of dancers and instructors is unparalleled. As is the support and encouragement we have received from our dance family. There are simply no words to express my gratitude or my love for each and every one of you.
To all witnessing this remarkable accompishment, I hope that you all enjoy the performance, and experience the joy that these beautiful dancers hold in their hearts for this divine art form.
May the love, beauty, magic, and comraderie that dance, and this ballet, truly stand for, ignite your holiday season.
Thank you to everyone watching at home and in the theater audience for supporting the Susan Vallo Memorial Dance Scholarship Program. Your contribution will help to proliferate the dream, and honor my Mother's memory in the most personal way possible.
To all of my lovelies - MERDE !!!!
My eternal love and gratitude,
