Thank you to Nicci Lovell for her wonderful ideas for networking and marketing at the February General Meeting. She shared excellent suggestions and online resources to help us promote ourselves, our studios and our profession. We have such amazing DVMTA members with so many gifts and abilities, thank you for sharing!
Cavalcade of Rhythm was simply wonderful! The music was so fun; my students just loved all their pieces. The entertainment was exceptional with Jimbo the Circus Performer, our very own Ringmaster, Charles Newton, and of course, our DVMTA students. It was exciting and fabulous, and I can’t give enough thanks to our Cavalcade Committee: Hollie Lunt, Joni Walker, Kelli Riding, Heidi Morris and Charles Newton. No detail was left undone, and so many thanks are given to all DVMTA members for your help to support this wonderful event.
Our upcoming events include Awards in Excellence, Achievement Day and our Devoted Performer and Senior Scholar Recognition evening. What a great way to finish up our year. With the adventures of the Winter Olympics fresh in our minds, many lessons and experiences of amazing athletes can be applied by our students to prepare for the rigors and stress of the end of year events, performances and recitals. One of the most famous Olympians ever, Jesse Owens, said, “We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.” And it takes amazing teachers and mentors to inspire the dream and give the tools to help students achieve their very best. What wonderful opportunities and adventures for us all as we strive for excellence!
