Words from our readers

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you what a great job you did with the article on the various Nutcracker productions [“Tough Nut,” July 2017] and what different studios emphasize for creating those magical acting moments. It was truly enjoyable reading and I loved seeing what other studios do. Thank you so much for so prominently displaying some of the photographs we sent. Thank you again!

Thank you so much for the beautiful article you wrote about the Latin Ballet [FYI: “Cultures Find Common Ground in Dance,” August 2017.] Please send us the link to the magazine online so we can share it with all our media. Gracias!

Hello! I was sitting outside enjoying the August 2017 issue of Dance Studio Life when I noticed the coloring page. I read the history with a big grin. I know the story well, for the studio Gene [Kelly] took [lessons at when he was] age 8 is the one I own, and the story was told to me many times by the first owner’s daughter! The history of my studio is dear to our story and makes it a very special place! In 2019 we celebrate 100 years. I can’t wait to share the coloring page with my students. Thank you!
