Testimonials

“Just wanted to tell you that my daughter had a great time at the class today!  I was honestly shocked by how chatty and eager she was while there. She has always had a lot of trouble advocating for herself in a group, and today it seemed like almost the opposite extreme – ha!  I think that must mean she feels very comfortable with you all and Ms. Maggie. Please let her know we appreciate her leadership today (that’s not an easy crowd!) and are really tickled to see our daughter really out of her shell today in terms of participation – that’s a really big deal for her. She’s looking forward to coming back!” –Parent of a student from a theatre arts session
