A letter from Miss Suzanne.                              August 2016

Dear Students,  

I am so excited that we share an incredible love of Dance!  Dancing at Suzanne’s School of Dance gives you expert training by the finest professional teaching staff around.  But just as importantly you are now in your home away from home where lifetime friendships are formed and you will always feel special!!

Dance is a medium in which you can be free to express all kinds of feelings in your own unique and special way.  It is one of the oldest forms of self expression and it just makes you feel good!

I have always strived to have a warm, safe, and loving environment in my studio.  It has been my lifelong mission to not only teach dance but to give students self confidence, self acceptance and love, and a warm compassion for other people.  “The Studio” is a haven in the midst of the competitive and sometimes troublesome world around us.

    I am confident you will agree with the hundreds of S.S.D. dancers who have made wonderful memories before you, we are “a cut above the rest”.  Yea Dance!  

Happy Dancing!
    Miss Suzanne
