Thank you for another wonderful show! Maddy had so much fun working on Aladdin Jr and we loved seeing her the happiest she’s been since the beginning of this pandemic. As always, it’s amazing to see what can be accomplished in just 2 weeks. The casting, set and choreography were all so well done. I know it’s been such a challenging time for your business and just want you to know that you make a difference in the community.
My children feel much less anxious after listening to you. We really appreciate the hard work and positivity you are giving our family. You all have been wonderful. Your hard work and passion doesn’t go unnoticed! Thank you so much. I adore NJD and my children love it even more than I do!
Shout out to Not Just Dance, the children’s/teen performing arts studio that has nurtured all three of our kids since 2016. They were 11 days away from opening weekend for A Chorus Line (high school edition) when the pandemic closures started. Meeting virtually for weeks, then outside for a few rehearsals, they pulled off a weekend of great performances, **reblocking about half the show in the last week** to make sure the actors could be as socially distanced as possible. Students were singing and dancing with masks when rehearsing and the staff got permission for a virtual ticketing option from the licensing group to keep in-person audiences small, separated and safe. It was glorious to see Molly on stage one more time before she heads to college, and all the middle and high schoolers on that stage powered through a challenging situation and made sweet musical lemonade from sour-virus lemons. The staff at NJD is one-of-a-kind for making this work! “What I Did For Love” indeed.
At the ‘last curtain’ I leaned over to Nicole and said “THAT WAS AWESOME!” I can’t wait to see the video. The whole production was incredible and everyone in the cast brought their A+ game. Well done NJD!
She absolutely loves being a part of your program, and we are so grateful we found you!
Thank you so much for all you and the Not Just Dance team do for Cate (and all the kids)! It is certainly one of her favorite things. 🙂
Thank you both for an amazing trip! Thomas had such a great time, the broadway workshop was a HUGE bonus. His face when they did the song live was absolutely priceless. I know a huge amount of effort and planning went into making this happen. Thank you for making the trip so special.
WOW WOW WOW! You all did an amazing job and thank you so much for everything that you do for our kids. We are really lucky to have you as a part of our community.
