If you ask Katie what the studio means to her she will tell you that it is her life long dream, her pride, her joy, her love, and her life. She doesn't consider it "work". The love she has for her studio and the students she teaches is unparalleled. She wanted to be a dance teacher and own her own studio since she was a little girl. This is a completely devestating and heartbreaking accident for her and the almost 100 dancers who consider this studio like a second home.
Anyone who has met Miss Katie knows that she is the most deticated, caring, passionate woman ever. This is a case of a bad thing happening to not only a good person, but one of the best people that there could be. SPDC is like a family and this family needs help.
Katie needs to get her studio back up and running. Insurance will take a significant amount of time before she will be able to collect and start rebuilding. Her competition team is scheduled to compete in just about 2 months. Time is not something that she has. She need to get her dancers back into her studio, to continue to train, and for them to know that it is a place that no matter what, they can count on.
Please help these dancers and their amazing studio director by making a donation of any size to help get the bare bones back into her dance room so she and her dancers can get back to what they do best! Katie has given so much to her dancers and her community, and now we can give her the help she needs!
