San Diego Dance Theatre
February 25, 2011
My first involovement was taking workshop dance classes many years ago. I found the dancers welcoming including dance company members. The experince was so good I continued to take weekly classes as often as I was able. Once I participated in a summer workshop & perfromance I wanted that opportunity in my own community. With the help of a grant, Jean Isaacs and the dance company generously came every summer to teach and perform in Ramona CA for 20 years. Jean and her dancers not only gave the gift of dance but life experiences and lessons to many students ages 10 years to 60 years old. I'll always remember the high student from a foster home who took part in the workshop, learned her part in the dances, then watched as the professional dancers, now her friends, took the stage. She turns to me and says "I feel like they are dancing just for me". What a wonderful experience this dance company made available for this young person and many others!
