​What a fantastic show!  The costumes, choreography, and, of course, dancers, were superb!  We are so pleased that Emma was able to be a part of the show.  There were some technical difficulties with her dance which surely disappointed all the girls, but they put on their best Carolyn Dutra smiles and got through it.  After we got home Emma said, "I'm so glad we went back to Carolyn Dutra."  When I asked her why she told me that all of the teachers are so nice and take the time to get to know the kids.  Miss Megan helped her when she forgot her earrings, and helped guide them through their routine when they got stuck.  She said that after the performance, Miss Megan and Miss Lauren gave all the girls a pep talk and made them feel better.  "They didn't just walk away from us."  Please pass along my congratulations and kudos to all of you who work so hard and see what's important.
