Almost 2 years ago I was debating whether to put Emmy in gymnastics or dance. She's naturally coordinated and athletic. She's strong despite her tiny frame. Ultimately, Emmy chose dance. We found an amazing studio, one that was recommended to me by a former patient's mother and from my aunt. My aunt was a professional dancer and told me to look into Dance Central because she used to dance with the studio owner. Ironically enough, it was the same studio my patient's mother recommended. We met Miss Kelley and Emmy fell in love.
Last year, Emmy had a hard time. She did really well with dance and was so cute! But we were going through a lot with her health-wise. She was sick a lot and went through a period where she just wouldn't dance. Miss Kelley supported us (mainly me) throughout the whole issue. We took a month off and Emmy regrouped. Then she ended up having surgery a few weeks before the recital. Emmy still managed to perform, looking oh so cute!

Thank you Miss Kelley for welcoming us into the DC Family and loving my EmmyBell as much as you do. She absolutely adores you and I'm so thankful that we have you in our lives!!! Thank you for believing in her and helping her see how much she's capable of!
