My very own dance teacher from when I was a young child visited our classroom this week and boy-oh-boy was it wonderful! Lili Loveday brought down the house with an hour and a half of music, singing, drama, dancing, and sign language. I am so fortunate to have many passionate, devoted, loving, creative, and powerful role models and teachers, such as Lili Loveday, in my life. Thirty years later she still has so much to teach me and reminded me about the power of conviction and belief in oneself, the intrinsic value of the connection between the mind and the body, and of the importance and effectiveness of joining positive energy with unrestrained positive action. The 5/6s & 6/7s take away — “Brittany, can Lili Loveday come back?”

Here are a few highlights…
