Some E-mails from Cinderella parents:

I would first like to say Thank you! Miss Caroline, what a beautiful production Cinderella turned out to be! I am so happy my daughter Cameryn was a part of such a unique performance. Thank you, I am happy to tell you that 14 members of her family made it a point to see the show, and each one of them had the most wonderful things to say about all of the performers. We all really loved that you had the children come and speak before the performance, my tears started then, and didn't stop until intermission! : ) As a parent I also wanted to tell you have much I loved all the girls and other moms who volunteered. I felt so comfortable leaving cameryn with all of you that I am looking into getting my other daughter into one of your next performances! I apologize for the tardiness, but I need to order a video, I'm sure I can still do it, but I'm not sure how to go about it. If you could ive me just a quick direction, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you again!

Good Morning Caroline:

I have had the opportunity to attend The Nutcracker, Peter Pan and now Cinderella through my daughter Stacey Shiffer.  You see, both of my grand daughters Cheyenne & Kaitlyn have learned sooooo much from their mommy and you as well.  Not only the ballet dancing but learning how to help special needs children get through this as well.  What a wonderful cast.
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how proud I am to see my grand daughters in the productions that you have worked so hard.  I know my daughter Stacey Shiffer has put her all into this.  I can only imagine the time you have given to all these children.  Your king was quite the funny one!  Loved it!
God Bless you and your family for caring and working very hard so that we as grandparents can sit back and enjoy the show!
PS….the girls love you.  And Kaitlyn really misses Morgan when they leave.  What a bond!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for a wonderful production!

Hi Caroline,

Yesterday was such an incredible day for us all. I don't even know if I can adequately put my feelings into words. We knew that the production would be wonderful, but we had no idea just how wonderful it would be. We were only able to see snippets of the play at rehearsals, so it was a amazing to see it all come together in the big theater!
The narration was absolutely fabulous -- so heartfelt and comical at the same time! And the dancers were all incredible! Aside from that, it was such an emotional experience to see Sabrina in a play on stage. As a child, I never did ballet, but as a mother, I envisioned maybe being a "ballet mom" or a "soccer mom"... an active supporter of whatever activit(ies) my daughter showed interest in. Instead, for the majority of her 8 years, I've been "advocate mom". While it is a supportive role, it also is much different from being a ballet or soccer mom. Instead of supporting her interests or wondering part she will play in a performance or what position she will be on team, I've worried if she would ever be in a performance or on a team and most importantly, if she would be accepted. During Cinderella, not only all of Sabrina's dreams came true, but also ours for her. I know that I have said it before, but we truly do appreciate all that you have done for us and for all that you do for with your ballet academy and in the community.
Thank you,
