Had to share these beautiful words from our student Makarah Olcott, age 9. It is words like these that remind us why we do what we do!

Well, the reason I like ballet and dance is because it makes me feel good about myself. It makes me feel flexible and talented. I love the way my toe points and the way my foot flys in the air when I do a degage. I love the way I fly through the air when I do a leap. I try to be respectful to my teacher. I try to be a good sport all of the time to my classmates. I think ballet is fun and it is good exercise. My goal in ballet is to be in the “Nutcracker” and I have always wanted to be on toe shoes. But I am too young to be on pointe. I love ballet, I love music and I love to dance. But ballet is my favorite of them all. I like to make friends in my class. the reason I go to MCA specifically is because it is close to my house and my Mom’s work. I like all my teachers and some of my friends go there too.
