"I want to thank you so much for all of the guidance, life lessons, confidence  and so much more that you have given to Savannah and me over the past 9 years.  We have loved every moment at your studio and will take the happy happy memories with us.  Not only Savannah, but I too have met such great people and made life long friends and I will miss it more than words can say.
 
She came to you a shy little girl and is leaving you a confident, self assured teenager.  For that too, I thank you.
Thanks so much for everything Vicki.  And trust me, I will stop in to say hello when in the area, and hope maybe that we will be back!"

The Elite Competition Team was created for the dancer who desires to take their dancing to a higher level.

It involves a sincere commitment from the dancer and their parents/legal guardians.

If YOU have what it takes to be a part of our team, see Miss Emilia for details.
