A word from Miss Hope!
"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory". Looking back on my countless years dancing at CSOD, this quote could not be more true. At the time everything seemed just like a regular old day, spending all my extra time at the studio was just what I did. But looking back on it, it was then that many of my most cherished memories were made. Growing with your friends in the studio, accomplishing your goals together and picking each other up when you're down. Having countless laughs and jokes with one another , and also sharing heartfelt moments. It's these things that seem so little at the time, but that impact your life in the biggest ways imaginable. The friends you make here are lifelong, the bond you make is unbreakable. I think it's important for all of you dancers to take a moment, just pause and look around. Appreciate where you are and what you're doing. The years go by way too fast, so live in the moment and appreciate how blessed you all are to be doing what you love with those whom you love. You might not know it now, but you're making memories here at the studio that will last a lifetime. Make everyday count, and most importantly smile and enjoy yourselves. You're all beautiful inside and out, and I feel very blessed to be making these memories with you.
