Congratulations to our March Student of the Month, Natalie Merritt!
Natalie started dancing at ADC in the Ballet for 3’s class, and is now in Ballet/Tap for 5’s. This is her last year as a kinder student! Natalie was quick to develop a passion for dance. Ever since her first year, Natalie has been a very sweet student who is eager to learn. She is always focused, on task, and friendly to all of her class mates.
This year Natalie has started a new tradition among her classmates. Her class starts in tap shoes and half way through they have to change into ballet shoes. Natalie is a super speedy shoe changer, and Ms. Andrea quickly noticed. Now, she and her classmates have a friendly “Shoe Changing Olympics” each week to see who can change their shoes the quickest. Natalie doesn’t always receive the gold medal, but she is always at the top of the class and has a good attitude regardless of who wins.
As she has gotten older, Natalie has really taken hold of her dancing and can remember dance theory and vocabulary. She is also working on memorizing the recital choreography without needing help. We can’t wait to see her perform her very first tap recital dance in May. Wonderful work, Natalie!
