A Message from Dawn

Now that we are working on Dawn's School of Dance's 30th Season, I look back and thank God for the blessings he has bestowed upon me in my lifetime. The gift of dance is certainly one of those blessings. Not only have I experienced the joy of dancing myself, but I have also had the privilge and pleasure of sharing my love of dance with the children in my community, thanks to the undying support of my husband, family and friends.

Over the years so many of you in King William and the surrounding area have honored me by enrolling your children in my school. I thank you for all of the time you spend driving kids to class, altering costumes, doing makeup at rehearsals and watching shows. Our motto at Dawn's School of Dance is "Dance for the love of dance," and therefore our main goal is to provide a fun creative outlet as well as an appreciation for the art form of dance. My hope is that your children have and will continue to learn lessons self-confidence, grace, teamwork, problem-solving and self-discipline that dancing can provide.

My teachers and I look forward to sharing our love of dance with your children this year. Thank you for your support and keep dancing!
