Congratulations to Danielle Newport for being named Premier Academy’s November Dancer of the Month!

Danielle was nominated for the dancer of the month for her courage, dedication, and heart.  Danielle always comes to class prepared to work hard, with a positive attitude, and a smile on her face.. Dance is often as much an emotional challenge as a physical one.  It takes courage to step into a classroom of strangers, let alone out onto a stage with an audience full of them!  Danielle continues to amaze us all in her ability to overcome those fears both in and out of the classroom. Most importantly we are grateful for Danielle’s heart which ensures that no student feels excluded or frightened.  She is a friend to all and that, more than anything, makes her a superstar!
