Our job as parents is to teach our children to fly, especially if they are extremely talented in what they are also passionate about.
When we moved to Nassau, Ella dove into gymnastics and dance. Ella soon realised that dancing was her passion (along with singing), doing Ballet, Jazz, Broadway and Acro. (She will be adding Tap, Contemporary and Hip Hop this coming school year).
Ella had a taste of what Perry Mansfield offers when she attended the Discovery Camp last summer (which she did a weekly bake sale in Hope Town to raise the money in order to go). She is eager to attend the two week long Emerging Artist Camp this summer. For this, she had to do a video dance audition and was accepted! Dewey and I are so very proud of her!
However, we can not do this alone. If you are able to contribute to help Ella in anyway, we would greatly appreciate it. Ella will also be doing bake sales in Nassau and I will post info on Facebook.
