“We were proud to have Caylena, a former and present adult tap dance student, photograph our students. … I was happy to give her the opportunity. After working with her photographing our senior students in February, her photos were a testimony to her work as a photographer and as a dancer with much experience. Having both wonderful qualities enabled her to take beautiful pictures of [our dancers]. While there was no “funny faces” this year, there was a systematic and caring approach to each child and all numbers.
Caylena, as an adult dance student, … I thank you and couldn’t be more proud of seeing one of my students evolve into not only the professional person that you have become, but one who also is a testimony that your experiences at Madeline’s Dance Center have made you into the lovely person that you have become. I cannot wait for you [and your fellow adult tappers] to perform in our 25th Anniversary recital. I had tears of happiness my heart after watching your rehearsal after pictures last night (talk about dedication), I was elated to discover how amazing you all still dance and the happiness that it brings you. You are all an inspiration!”
