This dance program is dedicated, in loving memory, to my grandmother, MaryEllen Godsey. Thanks for believing in me and encouraging me so much that this studio, in Winona, is a reality. May you enjoy many new videos and make many more grammy's "so proud". I love you.
Thank you, also, to Sandra Jackson who provided a studio that enabled me to love dance. She showed me how to be a strong, yet gracious, leader. Sandra taught me to trust that she saw "the big picture" in directing my growth. Even if I had never danced a day in my life after leaving her studio, I gained the confidence and discipline needed to accomplish anything I wanted to do.
