The Legacy Times

Volume 19 - March 2019

Director's Spotlight - Shanna Grubb

Dear Parents,

I’m so proud of the girls and all they accomplished at competition! They have shown an amazing amount of grit and are learning so much about perseverance and hard work!

Thank you so much for everything you did to make competition run so smoothly from our moms who spent hours putting rhinestones on lyrical dresses, making goody bags to those who helped with curtains and props. We couldn’t have done it without every little thing you did behind the scenes to make it happen including waking up early to get your girls to practice each day so thank you so much for everything!

The year is going so fast! Spring Clinic and Spring Show will be here and the year will be coming to a close before we know it. We will need to all pull together to make spring show amazing but I know we can do it! Please recruit little ones from your friends and relatives to dance at our clinic and then perform at our spring show. Also it would be so helpful If you can please re tweet and share our flyers on social media and possibly send a personal text to those you feel comfortable inviting. This is a great opportunity for our girls and our program to bless the community with the gift of dance.

I hope everyone has a wonderful spring break and am looking forward to a fabulous Spring Show!

“Together everyone achieves more, there is no I in TEAM”
