Bravo!

Congratulations to Maggie Marino, our choreographer and hip hop instructor extraordinaire, performed in the National Tour of

 

The Addams Family Musical!!

 

Maggie is a wonderfully talented performer, hard worker, and gifted teacher. Her success shows that if you work your hardest and persevere, you can have the things you wish for in life!  She is a true role model to our students.

While we missed Maggie's presence in our studio, we can’t help but be excited for all the world has to offer her!

Go MAGGIE! We are with you!
