Artistry, discipline, technique, expression are the first words that come to mind when we think of our daughter’s experience at Draper Center for Dance Education. When she began at the age of 5, we had no idea that her work there would become a cornerstone in her life. If she could live at the studio, she would. The teachers have developed within her a strong sense of self, supported her passion for the art form, and navigated her individual challenges with humour, grace and focus. The skill set she has developed at Draper transfers into her daily school studies, her empathy for others and her social activism. We are very grateful to Draper and their teachers for their energy, deep dedication and love for their students.
