Dance Performance for the HHT Foundation
We would like to thank all our Team McBride dancers who came out to dance for the HHT (Hereditary Hemmorrhagic Telangiectasia) Foundation at the HHT National Patient and Family Conference and Fundraiser in San Jose last Saturday, July 19 Your dancing put so many smiles on the faces of those afflicted with this disease, as well as their families and the doctors and researchers working on their behalf. The standing ovation you received was very much deserved, and we could not be more proud of you. THANK YOU! We would also like to thank Angela and Katelyn Brown for inviting us to share the evening with them!
And last, but never least, we would like to also say THANK YOU to all our Parents who let us take their dancers to the HHT Foundation performance, as well as to those who drove the dancers and provided drinks and snacks. You know who you are! We could not do what we do without YOU!!!
(PS thanks to Makenzie and Ellie for the picture from the event - we love the fact that Annie photo bombed without knowing!)
And on the flipside, here is another article by Cara Sutherland from the Diddlyi blog about what to think about when it is time to sell your old solo dress.
Here is a great blog article written by Cara Sutherland and found on Diddlyi.com. It gives you some things to think about and good tips when it is time to get that new (or used) solo dress. We also suggest that you speak with Eileen Parker, TCRG, who is great with suggesting colors and designs for her dancers.
Here is Part 2 to the Article "Smart Turnout: Part 2 – Avoiding Compensations" by Claire Plummer, P.T., TCRG. The series is a great read!
