A note of thanks

Posted in About the class, The Ballet World on May 24, 2012 by gr8full

In case I didn’t say it already, THANK YOU so much for the wonderful Collaboration  for the Haskell.
Between the Newport Community Orchestra efforts and Ballet Arts, it was a tremendous afternoon. One woman commented that it was the best afternoon she has ever spent at the Haskell.

You are such a gem and such an incredible choreographer and teacher. Your “recitals” are not recitals at all but, in fact, Jewels of classical ballet from costumes to hair to performance. We are so fortunate to have you in the Northeast Kingdom.

Again, many thanks,

Lynn Leimer
