Learning Ballet with RHF has been a wonderful journey for Deanna and myself. The teachers have helped tap my daughter’s truest capability. Today, when I see my daughter’s dedication and consistent desire to attend every ballet class definitely proves that the teachers are doing a fabulous job. The fact that Deanna gets very upset about missing any ballet class shows the efficiency, support and encouragement she has been receiving. Deanna dreams of pursuing Ballet professionally, I’m sure RHF will not only fulfill this dream but help her be focused and dedicated towards it!!!
