Hooray Company Families!

What an awesome weekend at a HUGE competition! I'm so proud of how everyone represented our studio! All of the hours of rehearsals and hard work REALLY shone through and resulted in some of our BEST performances of the season! Congratulations to all of you on your dedication to not only your own personal achievements but also to being there for each other as a team! You guys are amazing! Go CSA!

Over the next few weeks we will be preparing for the Recital and Company auditions! There will be NO Sunday Rehearsals this week.
