The thing that melts our hearts the most is not just their passion for dance, but their fearlessness, eagerness and determination to chase their dreams! Seeing incredible young men and women have the confidence to turn their dreams into reality is why we do what we do!#proudteachermoment #dancematters #jointhemovement
