Dear Studio Families,
This is an email that I’ve had a hard time pulling together. Greeting your children every day and interacting with them for the past few years has brought me so much joy and laughter. You are all very blessed to have such amazing children. I love watching them interact with each other, listening to their laughter, seeing their faces when they achieve something new in class and capturing the moments when they show kindness to others...PRICELESS. All of that being said, I have made the tough decision to explore a new opportunity and my last day at the CSD studio will be Friday, March 26th.
CSD is a very special place. In July of 2013 CSD became my daughter’s dance home and it remained her home away from home for 5 wonderful years. It was the longest amount of time she had ever been at one studio as the Navy kept us moving every 2 ½ - 3 years. It has also been my second home since 2013 and I would not change a minute of it.
Your dancers are blessed with a great facility in which to dance and an AMAZING staff who constantly explores new opportunities to help your children grow and achieve their dance goals. I have been blessed to be part of such a place and to have the chance to work alongside some of the most amazing human beings that I have even known.
My plan for now is to continue to work on the financial side of things until I am able to fully train my replacement.
While this decision was not made lightly, I truly believe that opportunities often present themselves when we least expect them. I have been blessed by your children and your friendships. I look forward to attending performances and watching your children grow as dancers. Thank you for always showing me kindness and for enriching my life. Have a wonderful Spring Break!
With a grateful heart,
Danielle Van Natta
