Spring Concert 2020:
“A Leap Into Your Imagination”
Welcome to AFS’ Red Carpet Experience!
Despite the name of this year’s Spring Concert, I think it is safe to say that none of us could have imagined when we began planning our show that it would be completely different than any previous AFS recital. Although it’s been a challenge to make multiple readjustments to our plans, it has been worth it all to see our students finish the year performing on stage. To my staff who worked tirelessly to make sure we continued teaching and supporting our students through online lessons, I am so grateful for your hard work and positivity throughout the past few months. I know revamping our show has been extra work on your part, and I want to thank you for your dedication to the arts, your students, and our studio family. Of course I also want to thank each and every one of you, our students and parents, for trusting us to make it work, for supporting our staff, and for believing in the healing power of dance. I am so grateful that you have continued to practice at home and stuck with us to make sure the show goes on. This recital is truly a testiment to what you can do with a little imagination and a lot of determination. Please sit back, relax, and enjoy our reimagined 23rd annual Spring Concert!
With Love and Gratitude,
