When Laila started to mention that she wanted to take dance lessons, the choices were overwhelming. There were so many local studios to chose from, so many differences in teaching style, prices, schedules, locations, etc. Then a good friend from church mentioned to us (me and my friends who were also looking) about a new studio where her daughter was dancing, and that they were very happy with it so far. We signed up immediately, and Laila couldn’t be happier! She was in a new studio, in a class with only 4 other girls, and absolutely looooved her teacher, Miss Vanessa! I cannot say enough about Citiline Studio of Dance, and if you are at all interested in taking classes, I would encourage you to check them out on Facebook or their website.
This was their first year of business and that meant their very first Year End Performance! Since the doors only opened in January of this year, the teachers and students had to squeeze in about 10 months of teaching into just 5 short months, but you would never be able to tell by the level of talent that was shown on that stage at the Ephrata Main Theater. We could not have been more proud of Laila even though she still suffers from some pretty bad stage fright. 🙁 She had fun, and that’s all that matters! What little girl wouldn’t love to get dressed up in a big tutu, hair and makeup, and dance to songs from Frozen with some of her best girlfriends?!
Thank you to Miss Lizzie, Miss Vanessa, and all of the other teachers and parents who helped to make this all possible. We are so happy to be a part of such a wonderful dance studio, and we look forward to many more years to come.

And now, please enjoy a few of the photos from the show!!!
Even though I know she is a little nervous in this one, it still makes me giggle a little. As soon as their music ended, she ran off the stage and into the arms of Miss Vanessa 🙂
Congratulations on a wonderful and successful show! Hugs, kisses, tears, gifts, awards…what a beautiful moment!
