A letter from the National President
January 29, 2022
2021 and so far, 2022 have once again been challenging years as we continued
to navigate the pandemic. I know all of us are exhausted from working endless
hours navigating through the daily changes this pandemic brings. Many studios
were forced to close their doors permanently, which broke my heart. Please know
we are always here to help as we can.
The Advisory Committee, TOGETHER, as a TEAM we have been working
very hard since the convention. We meet on Zoom each week discussing
everything DMA. We meet in person in October at my home in Sandy Hook, and as of this letter we have completed our convention meeting here in Nashville Tennessee.
We are very excited to see our DMA FAMILY at one (or many) of this summer’s events:
Intensives – Ballet June 30th, Jazz July 1st and Tap July 2nd
137th National Convention – July 3rd – 9th
S.H.I.P. 2 (NC) – July 15th – 19th
S.H.I.P. 1 (NY) – July 24th – 28th
Teachers Training School – July 30th – August 3rd
On a personal note, THANK YOU to my DMA FAMILY for all the messages and love sent over the last 6 months as I went through the test, surgeries, and treatment for breast cancer. I am now fully recovered and have follow up appointments every 3 months. It was this AMAZING FAMILY that guided me through the toughest of days getting me to where I am today.
If you are a new member all I can say is WELCOME to the best FAMILY anyone can ever have!! You will see that this DMA FAMILY is ALWAYS here for you no matter what.
DMA National President
