Dear LDTA Faculty and Staff, I wanted to take a quick moment to thank all of you at LDTA for your hard work and dedication to our kids. The Children’s Division Spring Show was adorable and the kids had a great time. This has been our first year with LDTA and we are so happy there. My daughter loves going to dance class and learning from Ms. Rachel. I have seen a huge difference in her little dancing/performing skills from her first recital in December to the Spring show this past weekend. Aside from dancing, she has learned some wonderful social skills as well (listening, taking turns, following directions, etc). Most importantly, her confidence has grown and she has had a lot of fun, which has warmed my heart to see.
Dear Kristin, I am so grateful for all the many years that your and your Longmont Dance Theatre has enriched the lives of my three girls. But, I am most thankful to you for bringing these beautiful ballets into my life. I would love it so much, even without my girls performing. Thank you for all you do for our youth

Exploring the neat things going on in Longmont has enriched my life more than I ever thought possible. I had the opportunity to capture some cool photos of theLongmont Dance Theatre PBIP students for the January issue of Inside Longmont the Magazine. The passion and commitment these dancers have is truly inspiring and Kristin Kingsley is a genius! Please check out the article about his unique program … right here in Longmont!

Dear Kristin, as I reflect on the many things to be grateful for this holiday season, you and LDTA come to mind. I want to thank you for the rich and rewarding experience our LDTA student (and the family) had during her many years in the Ballet program. Our LDTA student developed an amazing level of mental and physical discipline, as well as a highly committed approach to training that have served her well in her academics and in her new endeavor – distance running. In less than a year, she has already achieved noteworthy success. I just wanted to share some updates on a long time student and to let you know what a wonderful foundation you provided for her during her years in the ballet program. With Gratitude and Affection,

Kristin, I wanted to thank you for your dedication to the high quality of your classes and the environment of love and growth that Longmont Dance Theatre provided for our LDTA student. We miss you all very much. Thank you for the amazing memories and the support you provided for our daughter. I know that spending time at LDTA and LDT contributed to the formation of the amazing young lady she is. I also wanted to let you know that the teachers at our new ballet studio were very impressed and pleased with our LDTA student. Several of them asked me who had trained her. She is in the pre-pointe class. Here they don’t use demi-pointe shoes, but she is still learning to sew the ribbons to her regular ballet slippers and continuing to train to get to pointe. She has pointe technique class once a week and recital and choreography another day of the week. She is slowly making friends and is loving it. In addition, she will be auditioning for the Nutcracker performance. I hope she gets the opportunity to continue to dance that ballet. Many hugs from us,
