"Hi Miss Christine,
I wanted to take a moment to say how pleased I am with Claire's progress this year. Since Claire started with the competitive team, I have seen significant development in her confidence, self-expression, responsibility and team spirit. I credit much of that to the positive influence of her teachers and fellow students at Protégé. I am impressed by the poise she shows in the face of challenges, and it's clear that she is benefiting from strong role models at the studio.
Thank you for creating such a healthy atmosphere at Protégé."
- Best Regards
"I just wanted to send a few pictures to share some of the wonderful moments from Natalie's first competition. I am thankful for the opportunity and we appreciate it very much. Natalie is so happy as is evidenced in every picture she takes. I am also happy that she gets to spend time with great role models at Protégé both young and old alike. My only child now has big sisters who are just as passionate about dance as she is 😁!!!"
