The grand opening was featured in three different Central Coast newspapers. Here is a scanned copy of the Santa Maria Times (Isabella is the one in the front with galsses on)
Russ and Isabella offered a father/daughter number with Isabella's own 'last minute' choreography to dad's guitar accompaniment of Rhythm of the Rain. It was a precious sight and was a hit especially to sentimental moms who got mushy and dewy-eyed. (sorry I didn't get to take a picture. I work part time at the studio office and I was working that day)
but here are a couple of scanned photos taken by the studio photographer...
Featuring the Razzle Dazzle Performance Troupe in
"Getcha Head in the Game"
Isabella truly enjoys her four dance classes (ballet, jaz, tap, and repertory). She loves everyone there (really helps alleviate her longing for her Choi's Martial Arts family). It goes to show that warm memories of a 'family' environment will always be remembered and can never be erased. We know that the new memories she is presently creating at her new dance 'family' will be a lasting one.
here's a photo I took of the tv monitor at the studio's lounge connected to one of the performance rooms (taken during Isabella's tap class )
