There is no amount of words that can say how grateful I have been for my time at CPAC. I truly feel like I have grown as a person and dancer in my time here. So many of the lessons I’ve learned about technique, cooperation, and work ethic I will carry with me forever! 

Nancy, all of the beauty that happens within this studio is because of you. I could never thank you enough for allowing me to experience all that I have with CPAC! You have created a second home for many of us, giving us all the tools we need to become successful dancers and people. Your generosity and support of all the dancers at CPAC is greatly appreciated, and I’m so glad I got to become a part of this family.  

Kristen, just in three years, you have taught me more about technique than I have learned in the rest of my life. Thank you for constantly working with us, and expecting the most out of us every class. Thank you for mixing up our class, and having something new to challenge us every week. I will definitely miss the laughs, the early 2000’s pop, and occasionally being called “Danny” when you get really tired! 

Jordan, your creativity and raw talent with choreography amazes me constantly! I am so thankful I’ve been able to work with you. Through your work, I have been able to explore and find such meaning. I’ve learned that having something look purposefully “ugly” can reveal true beauty, and the range of emotions just one piece can have. Because of you, contemporary now holds a very special place in my heart. 

Tessa, working with you over the past couple years has been an absolute joy. Your creations have pushed my boundaries, and make me ask more of myself in the best possible way. Thank you for inspiring me to work harder when times were tough, and enabling me to do some pretty crazy floor work! 

Zack, any time I hear the song “Stand by Me”, now and for forever, I will think of that rehearsal. Thank you for dealing with all of our shenanigans, and for helping make that dance one I still think fondly upon. Thank you for all the chats in the hallway, and always helping us figure out the lifts in our dances! 

Lindsey, you are the reason we have the chance to get stuff done around here! Thank you so much for working around everyone’s schedules, and making sure things are running smoothly year-round. 

Jen Lee, you are sunshine. Your unwavering support of ALL the dancers at this studio is cherished. Thank you for always going above and beyond, both in and outside of rehearsals. You make us work harder, and you push us to do more with our dances, but also take interest in our lives outside of dance and are always willing to have a chat. Thank you for believing in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself. You are a positive force in the world, and it impacts all who you come in contact with. And man, am I gonna miss those HUGS! 

 

Chaka OUT!
