We wanted to write a personal thank you for inspiring and teaching S. She has immensely enjoyed the many hours she has spent taking lessons at your school and performing in competitions and recitals. You have created a school of dance that is full of originality, creativity and laughter. You are wonderful role models for all young people, who wish to express themselves through dance. We admire the values you have helped to instill in the dancers, of discipline, mutual respect, and presentation. We’d like to think our daughter already possessed those qualities when she enrolled in your school, but know for certain you have continued to reinforce them. The time we will miss the most is the hour following her lessons, when S could not wait to get home and show us all the new steps she had learned, with such pride and excitement! She is now ready of course to continue her life journey, but she as well as we, will remember her time spent at Allegro with fondness and gratitude.

I just want to send this little note to let you know how much I appreciate what Allegro has meant to our family. That M is a happy, healthy and confident teen can largely be attributed to your guidance and inspiration. Parents can try to convey the importance of values such as taking responsibility for oneself, discipline, teamwork, taking risk, healthy habits and plain old hard work. But it has so much more meaning when it comes from revered teachers and role models like you and your wonderful staff and faculty. In addition to the technical dance skills M has learned over the past 6 years, I particularly appreciate your choices of interesting and varied themes for your students to express with dance. It’s a true art form—the ability to tell compelling stories through dance. To everyone at Allegro, best wishes for a great summer!

Congratulations to you all for the wonderful achievements of your dancers under your leadership. What I particularly enjoy about the Allegro performances, and especially the production numbers, is how you include technique, teamwork, art and story-telling in every piece. Performed by such exuberant and talented young dancers—you end up with an outstanding finished product—and enormously entertaining. Best wishes.

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your classes last week. They were truly amazing! I can certainly see why J LOVES coming to dance. I love the way you teach … the girls were having so much fun, and working their butts off, and learning so much … Just fantastic! All the classes I watched (which was all of them) were excellent! Thank you for all your hard work. You have very happy customers!

I was at a dance festival committee meeting today, and I just wanted to pass on some wonderful compliments that were mentioned about Allegro. I can’t even quite remember how it started but all of a sudden most people at the meeting started to say the most complimentary things about you and your students. The dancers from your school are very polite, helpful and considerate, they are very well trained and put on very entertaining performances both solos, small and large groups. One of my disappointments about not being at Festival this year was that I would not be able to see you and your dancers. Keep on loving and excelling at what you do!

Words can’t describe how much inspiration, motivation and determination you’ve enabled me to find over the years of dance. You have taught me so much and have pushed me to work harder, to be the best I could be, and for that, thank you. It’s sad to think that after all this time, numerous costumes and hundreds of hours put in that such a significant part of my life has come to an end, especially leaving all the terrific people and faculty of Allegro. Thank you for believing in me and for allowing me such an amazing experience.

We just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how proud we are that our girls are a part of Allegro. Every time company walks on stage to perform Music of the World our hearts fill with pride that our daughter is a small part of it. Sitting in the audience to watch the number performed we can hear others around us in awe of the dance commenting on ‘the sheer numbers, the precise timing, the fantastic costumes and the amazing talent of the dancers and the choreographers who must have put the number together.’ You three have done an incredible job and should be so proud of yourselves and all that you have accomplished with Allegro and PYP. Congratulations!

I wanted to thank you for creating a wonderful and safe environment for our kids. A is enjoying dance so much and it is because of your kindness and dedication that she has grown in confidence. She has come such a long way from that little girl that wouldn’t leave my side and cried … Never once now has she grumbled about going to dance, which proves to me that you all made a difference. Enjoy your summer!

I just wanted to say how impressed with all the dancers last night! It was my first time being at a recital like that and I thoroughly enjoyed my evening. I was particularly wowed by the Senior dancers … holy smokes! I couldn’t believe my eyes with all the attention to detail in the movements! Really amazing and beautiful. Anyways … well done. You should be so proud of yourselves! I wish I had a daughter sooner so I could have been a part of this whole dance thing earlier!!!

Just to thank you ladies and your school for allowing me to fulfill a long delayed life long dream. The skills you teach can last a lifetime no matter what level. May you achieve all your goals you ever hoped for.

I hope you realize how much we appreciate your commitment and dedication to our children. Thanks for another amazing year!

You all amaze my family and I with your talent, creativity and commitment! You really inspire young people to be creative, passionate and positive! C had a fabulous year and for this, and all you do, we say THANK YOU!

Thank you so much for this year at dance! It was so much fun! I loved all my dances. Dance has helped me so much with my confidence and personality, and that’s all thanks to you 3! I love to dance and having you guys as my dance teachers makes it so much better! Thanks so much, see you in September.

During the past 14 years it has been a pleasure dancing at Allegro. I feel grateful to have been taught and guided by all of you over the years. Allegro will always have a special place in my heart. I couldn’t thank you all enough for all your support, kindness and most of all the love you gave towards myself and the other dancers. I will always cherish the memories I’ve made at Allegro. Lots of Love …

I just wanted to let you know how much E and I have enjoyed being part of the Allegro family for the past 14 years. It has been such a joy to watch her grow up on stage and I have appreciated every moment! Thanks again for supporting and nurturing her for the last 14 years!
