There are few people on this earth that project positivity, excitement, and love the way that you do. You are the bright star in many folks dark night. And I think I speak for many others when I say “I Love You, Thank you for Everything that You Do, and The World is a Much Better Place because You Exist!!”

Senior Spotlight! 💫🎉🎓💕🎉💫
Meet Katie!

Hello! My name is Katie Stansbery and I've been dancing since I was 6, and have been with The Dance Academy since I was 9. I have mainly trained in ballet and have loved every minute of it. Dance has been something that I've lived and breate for most of my life, I've never really been able to explain it fully, but dance has always been the thing that brought me joy when nothing else could. It's my way of connecting with others even if we don't speak, because for me, dance is where I find my voice and I find myself. I'm so thankful for all the years I've spent at The Dance Academy, and hope to continue training here as long as I can. I run a Charity and Ministry called Hearts on Pointe where we use the talents that God has given us in hope of shining His light on others through shows and performances at senior homes and anywhere we can possibly bring a smile. I hope to continue growing that as we go, and am also hoping to write a book in the next couple years. I don't know for sure what the future will hold, but I'm excited for it, and I'm thankful for every moment I've had getting here and for the moments to come.


We bickered again—it’s a typical routine for us. I hate doing her dance hair. It takes forever and we both lose patience.

“I’m so glad this competition season is almost done,” I whispered to myself as I tightened the last braid.

I didn’t dance as a kid and it’s taken me a while to understand this sport.

It’s a lot of travel and time.

Practice each week and hotel stays during competition season.

It’s makeup and costumes and money.

It’s exhausting and a lot for parents.

I sent a text to my husband before she took the stage for the last time this competition season.

“She’s almost ready,” I said, “and she’s beautiful as always."

And then I watched my sweet girl.

Her eyes and smile, bright under those stage lights.

Her steps, in tandem with other dancers—dear friends, who’ve grown up alongside her.

She loves dance, and you can tell it’s her thing. I’m in awe of how she glides across the stage with such poise and confidence.

The music stopped. The dance was over. The applause began.

And I cried.

“I can’t believe this season is already done,” I told myself.

Next season, she’ll be 12. It all goes so fast.

Because even though it’s exhausting, even though it makes us bicker, it’s worth it.

It’s my greatest joy to watch my kids do what they love.

And the truth is, I’ll miss it so much when it’s over.

❤ Leslie Means

Senior Spotlight! 👩‍🎓💛💚🎓🤩🎉 Meet Leilannie!

I’ve been dancing for as long as I can remember, my family has a long history of being associated with the music industry with my grandfather on my moms side being a professional musician as well as making his own guitars. I’m graduating from show low high school and my after high school plan is to just work to support myself and the way I want to live and hopefully be able to continue doing what I love by paying music and dancing!
