PRDG wishes to thank all of our parents, staff and students on a “Broadway Blitz” performance. There are a few individuals that we want to spotlight:








PRDG Staff: these instructors spend countless hours teaching classes, choreographing and staging each routine for our recitals. Miss Artie & Miss Veronice appreciate their dedication and love of students. Shout out to Miss Kristin for designing our “Broadway Blitz” recital logo.

PRDG Staff



  • Mr. Garvel Kindrick: Garvel has 2 daughters that danced with PRDG for years then went on to high school and college dance teams. He still volunteers as our Sound Engineer and Announcer. He runs our music at every rehearsal and keeps us on track back stage. We couldn’t do it without Garvel……Thanks so much



  • Mr. Brent Devers: our fabulous prop building dad (and assists with lighting). We tell him what we need and he builds it, paints it and it appears in our studio in less than a week! Not sure what’s in store for next year but it’s gonna be BIG…..but don’t tell Bret! Thanks Mr. Devers 
By the way......we LOVE your shirt!






  • Mrs. Spohr: Daneen assists all year when Miss Artie needs help at the Parks desk and at rehearsals running the ticket and info table. Thanks Daneen!




  • Marsha Hamby: Marsha is Miss Bridget’s mom and has been our Backstage monitor for at least 15 years. She runs the backstage area for every dress rehearsals and recital! Somehow Marsha always manages the cafeteria dressing room, Dance Company dressing rooms, gets all classes onstage for their numbers and lined up for Finale’. Not sure how she does it and stays so calm….. “Marsha Magic”! Thanks Marsha



  • TA’s: Miss Emily, Miss Maya, Miss Macy, Miss Megan, and Miss Bree

These young ladies are an inertial part of our program all year long. They assist dance instructors with teaching, setting up the classroom, and helping individual students in class. They are such wonderful role models for our little ones!  Thanks girls for everything you do for our program!

  


ShowMoms: WOW ….so much to say! We really 

“Couldn’t do it without you”! They work with us the last month in class, stay with students at rehearsals and recitals in the cafeteria and dressing rooms, assist in numerous bathroom breaks, wipe noses, dry tears, fix costumes, monitor snacks, pick up crayons, and make this the most exciting dance experience for all of our students! Plus they get to do it TWICE! We LOVE our ShowMoms!
