Thank You for an Amazing 2016 Gala Show!

Dear dancers and parents,

I am so thrilled – What a great show! With all of our teamwork and effort, everyone came together and we presented great shows yesterday and today! I know I am repeating myself, but what a great show!!!!

The audience was so happy and moved by the music, the perfect dance movements and beautiful costumes. They learned a lot of history and culture through you. This was a team effort and we do have such a strong community! I am so lucky to have all of you taking part in Ah-Lan Dance. I am really proud of you and I really, really appreciate your support!

I want to specially thank my male dancers, especially main characters who made many personal sacrifices and took on a heavy load for this show. All of your rehearsal time in the end made your performances very strong in the shows!

I want to say thank you to all the dancers, parents, and Room Moms: Without you the show could not have been so brilliant. I want to thank Christina Sun’s mom Mary Sun who helped with all the administrative work of tickets and preparing flowers. I would like to thank An-An Nagase’s mother Michele Ku, who helped a great deal with backstage tasks. I want to thank Kelly Ying’s father Simon Ying, who decorated the theater. I want to thank all of you parents for carrying on through this high-pressure performance time with big hearts and understanding. Most importantly, thank you for your trust, for letting me teach your daughter (or son!) dance and allowing me to instruct them in the discipline of performing with a group on stage for an audience. I know that with all these experiences of performing, your child will be more confident and beautiful!

I am very excited, and I know you are too. If you and your guest have comments about our show and positive word to share will all the dancers and parents, please write your comments here (in the web page click on “Jump to Comments”). It will make our dancers feel pride in the great things they have accomplished!
