“I never imagined 25 years ago, when I attended my first summer course at PNB School, that I would go on to have such a rewarding career with this great company. I knew that I truly loved PNB and feel immensely fortunate that Kent and Francia took a chance on a very flexible, and somewhat uncoordinated, young dancer. I am beyond grateful for all of the love and commitment they put into nurturing the dancer I would become. I am also extraordinarily appreciative to Peter for the countless and diverse opportunities he has gifted me. You have all helped me to fulfill my dreams in ways I never realized were possible. To the audience, subscribers, donors, rehearsal directors, school faculty, administration, PR, marketing, costume, wardrobe, production, stage crew and managers, musicians, and everyone else that makes PNB the incredible place that it is, thank you. It has been the pleasure of my life to share my passion with you all.”
