L.A. DanceMagic BACK

LA DanceMagicA Note from Director Jackie Sleight:
"Dance is it for me. No other option. No other choice. And I wouldn't change a thing. I'm in love with dance, I love my crazy job, and I love these kids. I'm living my dream, and I know what it takes to achieve your dreams.  It's really kind of simple. Just don't stop. I'm blessed, honored, and grateful to be where I am today, and it's all because I said yes. Yes to the work, yes to the challenges, yes to the dream. And then I wouldn't stop.


LADM Dance ConventionWhen I teach, my goal is to ignite a thought or a hope or a dream, and then make my
students feel the power to go after it. I want them to fall in love with something. I want them to be doctors, writers, builders, dancers...and I want them to love it and to look forward to the challenges, because that's where the real payoff lies. I want them to say yes, and then not stop.


At LADM we have all the wonderful and fun things that one would expect at a convention. We have classes, competition, lights, videos, trophies, and all the other stuff. We sing, we laugh, we make friends and memories. And bigger than that, we have a faculty that shares more than steps, knows more than is imaginable, and cares more than you'll ever believe. That's why I surround myself with them. So where I began years ago with 'just don't stop,' has circled around again. I teach, I love it, and I just won't stop."
