We get kids who’ve never set foot in a dance studio before, especially in cocurricular classes like Beginning Ballet or Dance for Athletes. In these classes, I do a lot of dancing with the students; I let them see me be silly. I never make students do something I’m not willing to do myself. At the end of every term we put on a show, and we’ve been packing the dance studio theater with 100 people in the audience. For the spring production, students needed to wear orange, yellow, and royal blue.
