2016 will be our daughter’s 10th year dancing with Rhythms.  Some might think that is a lot to invest into a “hobby.”  It is more than that.  Our daughter has a great work ethic, developed social skills, and has a grasp of the teamwork concept.  Our family’s investment with Rhythms has provided our daughter with pride in accomplishment, physical activity, and confidence.  We look forward to many more years to come with Rhythms!
