I have had the joy over the past 10 years to see incredibly talented kids grow into incredibly talented young adults and eventually into incredibly talented professionals in their art form. It takes time and ambition to reach that level, and the instructors at MYB know how to cultivate and motivate these young artists to give them the keys to their future in dance.

I will continue to come back for Nutcracker for as long as they’ll let me do it. In fact, as every year goes by I am growing into the proper age of the character! It makes my heart swell when I think of being back in Appleton, surrounded by talented artists all contributing to capture a bit of the magic that is intrinsically tied to Nutcracker.¬†That, plus the cape. I love that cape.
