Thanks to the City of Del Rio for its community spirit and drive to keep growing great programs.

Special thanks to Nicki and Nancy at the Firehouse for taking a chance on a new teacher and supporting her through the years! And for picking out the costumes when I can't look at another book, Nicki's ability to find the perfect look keeps everyone looking beautiful.

Sharon Boles, my mom, for embracing my dreams along with me and doing everything you can to help along the way. The backdrops are gorgeous and take us to a higher level (along with all of your beautiful furniture I "borrow" each Nutcracker season)!

Amy Boles, my sister, for taking an idea and making it a reality. Your photography continues to astound me and I am so blessed you allow me and my dancers to be your muses. I appreciate all the time and effort you put in to all our performances; you have made us professionals.

Molly Harman for putting in countless hours without a second thought. You keep my world running. I don't know how I got things done without you.

Grace Khan for being my sanity throughout this process. I have learned so much from watching you teach and choreograph. I will miss you dearly next year, my friend.

Alyssa Perez for being the muscle behind this year's Nutcracker. Your willingness to help at a moment's notice and ingenuity to solve any problem puts you above the rest.

My backstage volunteers who make the show run seamlessly and keep our dancers smiling!

Thanks also to Balloon Boutique for the beautiful decorations.

My students, I have watched so many of this year's dancers grow into mature young ladies as well as beautiful dancers. They spread joy and kindness to so many with their words and movements. Their hard work motivates me and I am proud to be their teacher.

Last but most important to me, my husband and children. Thank you for loving me and supporting our crazy life.
