My daughter, Caitlyn Harrell, had the privilege of taking ballet under you for two years, up until our family relocated to Winston-Salem this past January. Due to the caliber of your instruction, Caitlyn was invited to attend the Preparatory Dance Program at the UNC School of the Arts and was recently cast in their production of The Nutcracker (she was one of four girls that received the only part available for her age group). I wanted to thank you for the opportunities you gave Caitlyn while a student at NCADA, and to let you know that your are the reason Caitlyn discovered her passion for ballet and I want to thank you for the level of instruction that has allowed Caitlyn the opportunity to attend UNCSA. At such a young age, she has already embarked on such an amazing journey.
As the season nears, I am told the UNCSA's Nutcracker is a beautiful performance, but, they will have huge shoes to fill compared to the phenomenal ballet that you have produced. I am proud to have been part of the NCADA family.
