Dear Mrs. Schanne,
I started dancing with you when I was 2.5 years old and I have loved dance ever since. Taking class with you made me a disciplined and flexible athlete. I am forever thankful that my mother had the foresight to enroll me in your program.
Today, I live in Philadelphia and have two children of my own who love music and dance. Wolfgang (almost 5) and Vivianna (almost 2.5) are ready to take the stage.
With thanks, love, and grace,
Jill aka \"McDougal\"

Hi Mrs. Schanne,
I wanted to share with you my daughter, Sarah King\'s recent endeavor. Please check out her website where she is in a jazz swing band and enjoying a full schedule. I thought you would enjoy it. She regularly plays at clubs in NY, Standard Hotel being the most recent. You can also find some of her performances on you tube.
She always credits you with her performing arts bug! Thank you for sharing your love of dance and instilling that in her. She is also involved in several other dancing groups, one affiliated with the Hungry March Band and another reminiscent of the Solid Gold Dancers from the TV show. Both can be found on facebook and the web. She recently ran into the Hartsough kids in Brooklyn. Maybe Kathy mentioned it to you.
She also continues to perform in plays when the opportunity arises.
Hope you are well!
For your info here is her contact info:
Sincerely, Beth King

Mrs. Schanne, I don\\\'t know if you remember me, but you had me from when I was 2 and a half to when I was 11. You taught me the grace and poise that ballet included, and it has been one of the only things that has stuck with me my whole life. I\\\'ve continued to do ballet, and, as I\\\'m almost 15, I\\\'ve done is about 12 and a half years, and I can never thank you enough for being my first ballet teacher!
The \\\"what color is your butterfly and where are you going\\\" game is one of my earliest memories, as is your nickname for me - Gracefully.
I doubt you remember me, but when I found your website, I just needed to say thank you!

Never have I forgotten the days gone by and dancing with Mrs. Schanne :D and that shoes shoud match our tights to avoid a blob at the end of our leg.
I currently wotk at a Performing Art Theatre and still take classes when I can, I have participated in master classes with several national and international companies but my fondest memories were trotting down the street to dance class and ice skating afterwards thinking we were the bomb.
And just a sidebar, Shelley Tait Evans and I have remained close over all these years and never a visit goes by without talk of the dancing days
hope this finds you well

Hello Mrs. Schanne!
SO happy to have found your website! I think of you often and have to say \"Thank You\" for teaching me so much more than just dance. Some of the best memories of my life, life lessons, and friendships have come from all the years I spent learning from you. Will love you always.
P.S. I have a three year old redheaded daughter who will be starting dance this coming fall! We live near Buffalo, NY, so if we\'re ever in the area, count on us for a visit.

I took lessons from your studio over 30 years ago. I recently began taking ballroom dance lessons and your lessons all came right back to me.

I just wanted to say hi!! I'm still dancing when my schedule allows...though I'm doing ballroom mostly. I also teach dance as a club where I teach. My 8th graders did the Nutcracker this year. (None of them had done anything like it before!!) I thought of you when I did it. I miss you and hopefully will get back to NJ to visit...and bring Lilacs. =)
