's everyone feeling? All we can say is WOW!!! What an incredible day of classes and events to kick off this years DTW Live Conference & Expo! Firstly, the adrenaline and energy that was buzzing through the hallways this morning after the Expo Breakfast sponsored by IDS and Keynote Presentation was a tell-tale sign that all of our attendees were ready to rock n' roll!

Classes filled the day with incredible faculty including ,Lyrical with D'Valda Sirico, Flamenco Jazz with Liz Imperio, Creative Ballet for Ages 4-6 with Jessica Epting, Ballet Character Work with Matthew Donnell, Fosse Technique with Ricky Hinds, Swagger 101 Jazz for Early Childhood with Simone DePaolo, Holistic Hip Hop with Leslie Scott and Musical Theater Technique & Style with myself, Jessica Rizzo just to name a few! Attendees were also given the opportunity to sit in on "biz classes" including Robert Landau's Self Esteem: Building the Right Mindset class and well Cutting Edge Technology for the Studio with Ivo Allen!

But it doesn't end there! Teachers and Studio Directors also were able to attend our Special Expo Event where prizes and fun were had by all in addition to tonight's Celebration Performance where everyone was treated to stellar performances from our faculty including James Whiteside, Principal Dancer with American Ballet Theater, Anthony Carr, Simone DePaolo, Nashville Ballet company member Christopher Stuart and many more! 

With a jam packed first day of classes, we know your heads will hit the pillow tonight from all the energy you've been giving us and we hope to be doing the same for you! You attendees are inspirational and we are privileged to have you here! We hope you've enjoyed your first day! So, get some rest and let's do it again tomorrow; starting with the Poolside Breakfast and Fashion Show sponsored by Costume Gallery!
