TO MY TUMBLEWEED FAMILY
Parents, Family, and Friends,
I had no idea when I opened the
doors to Kathy’s Tumbleweed what an amazing journey it would take me on. I had a dream, a desire, to share my love for
dance with others.
MY DREAM DID COME TRUE!!
35 years ago my dream was to open a studio
where students could learn *The Love to Dance*. I wanted my studio to be an environment where students felt welcome, comfortable,
at home. I wanted them to have fun, make new friends. I wanted students to never feel pressured or judged. I did not want
anyone to feel they could not do it or they were not good enough. I wanted them to learn confidence and
learn to be proud of who they were. I wanted everyone to feel special and I wanted to make sure everyone got the opportunity
to shine like a star!
I cannot believe 35 years has past. Time
sure fly’s by when you are doing something you love! My life’s journey has had ups and downs over the years, but
my studio has always been my rock. It has always been *My Happy Place*. Nothing could ever bring more joy to me than seeing
the beautiful smiles on my student’s faces day after day. Watching them grow, being a part of their world. Being able
to bring them enjoyment! I am so lucky to have met so many wonderful people. I love the family that together
we have all created. Our TUMBLEWEED FAMILY is a family that compares with no other!
FAMILY THAT MEANS SO MUCH TO ME!
Thank you for being a part of this very
special family. Each and every one of you hold a special spot in my heart. Thank you for all the endless memories you have
given me. Thank you for your loyalty, your dedication, your support. Thank you for your kindness, your understanding, your
friendship and your love. Thank you for sharing your journey in life with mine.
Now as our new Dance Season begins, all of us together will take a curve in our life’s journey as we say goodbye
to Kathy’s Tumbleweed, and welcome Kadee’s Tumbleweed. I am very excited to see where our journey will take us
now. I see good things ahead! GREAT THINGS! I know our Tumbleweed family will stay together, and it will
continue to grow!
I want to ensure you now, that as we continue our journey
together with Kadee as our new leader, I promise you I will be right there with you. Always remember the doors to my home
are always open! You need not be a stranger. If you need a hug, I’m there! If you need an open ear. I’m listening!
If you need anything, just ask! You are and always will be my very special TUMBLEWEED
I love you all.
