First of all, thank you for signing me up for dance lessons when I was three years old. It changed the course of my life in ways that I can never fully explain. Without you putting me in dance, I never would have found the passion for it that I still have today. Thank you.
Thank you for all of the literal support you have given me for dance. Thank you for the rides to and from the studio and performances. Thank you for your financial support, and for never questioning whether or not dance was a worthy investment. Thank you for sewing, altering, and even making some of my costumes. Thank you for running out to Jo-Ann's Fabrics to make me a new piece of my costume that of course I lost and didn't realize until dress rehearsal. Thank you for helping me through injuries and getting me ice packs in the middle of the night when my knees won't stop swelling. Thank you for letting my set up a ballet barre in our spare room.
Thank you for the emotional support you've given me. Thank you for letting me cry to you when I didn't get the role I wanted and cheering me up after a hard class. Thank you f0r coming to all of my shows, whether I had the biggest role or the smallest. Thank you for always volunteering to help out backstage and supporting my shows in every way possible.
Thank you letting me have a life outside of dance. Thank you for not forcing dance upon me and allowing me to have other hobbies and passions. Thank you for letting me just be a kid or a teenager and not pushing me to become a star. Thank you for making sure I didn't miss out on any milestones- from my first musical to senior prom- because I had dance that day.
Above all, thank you for understanding that dance is not just a hobby for me. Thank you for allowing me and supporting me in my decision to study dance in college. Thank you for seeing the validity of my major and for believing that I can be a dance educator and choreographer in the future. Lastly, thank you for the support for my career and my future students that I am sure you will give.
Everything I have in dance would not have been possible without you. Thank you.
Your Little Dancer
Happy Mother's Day to All Dance Moms, from Ballet with Becca!
