Upcoming Transitions: A Message from the School Director
Posted: Tuesday April 1, 2014 2:24 pm

Dear Dance Project Families,
It is with mixed emotions that I share with you my decision to leave my position as School Director after the Spring Showcase.

As many of you know, I have two very young sons who keep me on my toes. As I seek to meet their needs while also maintaining balance in my life, I have made the difficult decision to set aside a position I really enjoy at an organization that I am excited about and believe in. Though difficult, I believe this will be the right decision. I am grateful to have been a part of a successful year in the life of the School. From our weekly classes to our outreach performances to our newest classes at a local preschool, I am proud of the many ways in which the School is flourishing. I am also excited about where Dance Project is headed in the coming months and years. If possible, I hope to remain teaching a few classes, and look forward to seeing all of our dancers continue to grow!

All the Best,
Emily Wilson Brenner
