“You’re capable of absolutely anything you put your mind too.”
“This studio is going to be so much more than you ever thought it would be.”
“You’ve made my daughter love to dance again.”
Here I am, 2 days away from the first week of fall classes and all of these different conversations I’ve had since Phoenix was born are running through my head. Words don’t even begin to explain the endless emotions I feel each and every step closer we get.
I had a realization moment the other night while teaching, a moment when reality hit me deep in my heart. Tears began to fill my eyes and I instantly realized this is it. In that very moment as I watched one of my teams rehearse, I was home.
Home has many definitions and can be many different places in your life. But if there is one thing that is true no matter where your home(s) may be, it is the one place you are free to be exactly who you’ve always dreamt of being. When I walk into that building, empty or full, I’m engulfed with so much joy. This is more than a dream come true and words will never be able to express how I feel teaching. I will work every single day to physically show each and every one of my students, parents and anyone in between that I truly love what I do.
Making life changing decisions can be the scariest thing any human will ever do in their lifetime. But I promise you… Take the chance, because you never know how absolutely perfect something could turn out to be. Phoenix is the definition of a dream come true. This did not happen overnight but dreams and dedication are simply a powerful combination.
I am ready. Phoenix is ready. Are you ready?
