We are in mourning today. Yesterday we were told that our dance teacher, Mrs. Stacey, would be closing her doors after the spring show. Mrs. Stacey (and her daughter Mrs. Bethany) runs a studio out of her basement and is wonderful. She is incredibly affordable, doesn't make out daughters learn lewd dance moves, and the mothers take turns creating the costumes so they are rarely expensive. Three of our pods have taken from her--including our boy. She makes sure that he always looks masculine. She is gentle with the young dancers and pushes the older dancers to award-winning levels.
Now, I have to go shopping for a new teacher. There is no way I'll be able to find someone to fill these shoes. It'll all work out, but, oh! we are sad.
Thank you, BeSt Dance Studio. We will miss you.
