Instructors Audrey and Devin tied the knot on Oct 1, 2016! It was an amazing wedding and all of us at CPAS wish them the best!
I cannot say enough about Lea Moore’s ability as a dancer and dance instructor! My eight-year-old daughter has taken ballet, jazz and tap classes for the past couple years and my five-year-old started dancing Spring 2010. What amazes me about Lea is that she is able to teach solid skills in a kid-friendly way. I love that she teaches “dance etiquette” in each class. It is not to take away from having fun, but to teach each student the important life skill of respecting others even in a creative environment. Both my girls have learned a lot and have become fond of Lea. She truly cares about her students, wants them to gain a love of dancing and encourages them to give it their all. My daughter quoted something from Lea’s studio yesterday unexpectedly… ”Life’s not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” I am thankful that she is learning this lesson as well.
