Hey everyone. It’s Ruth and I’m here at our Silver Creek Clogging Dance and Movement Center, in Silverton, Oregon; the home of Dance Classes that Make Kids HappyTM.
This is What’s Happening at Silver Creek Clogging the week of November 23rd. It’s the week of Thanksgiving. Yay! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
I’m not going to go into all of our regular updates and announcements this week. This week, I just want to focus on a couple of things.
One is, we do not have any classes this week. We’re off for the whole Thanksgiving week and two, just a reminder that next week all of our classes are online.
And, the real thing I want to focus on is, how grateful I am for you guys.
You know, I think this year, maybe more than any other year in the past, I’ve found myself really wanting to, and being drawn to, think about and reflect on things that bring me hope and gratitude and the things for which I am thankful. And, over and over and over, right there near the top of the list is you guys; our studio community.
I know that I say this a lot, but it’s really, really true. We have a very, very special and unique community, different from most dance studio communities, in that you guys are all so super kind and supportive and encouraging to each other and everyone at the studio (me, our other staff).
It’s just a really great community and I really appreciate everything that you guys do to bring joy to each other’s lives, to support each other in what are very difficult times right now.
And, especially our students in classes, it’s been very, very wonderful to see how our students really have come together in this time to encourage each other, build each other up, congratulate each other, celebrate each other, be interested in each other, and just really come together with that positive energy.
I just, again, you guys are so amazing. I’m very grateful for you, in this time especially; when it’s so…
This year has been (I don’t have to tell you, but); this year has been very, very difficult and one of the main bright spots for my year has been you and the joy that I see you bringing to each other and the joy that brings to me.
So, I want to thank you guys, sincerely, for how amazingly special you are and wish you a fantastic Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
That’s it from me. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Dancing!
