I had the absolute honour of spending sixteen years as a member of the Regina Rogers School of Ballet. From the young age of six Regina ignited a love of ballet in me, her sheer grace and dedication shone through in every aspect of her teaching. I cannot thank Regina enough for teaching me how to dance from the tips of my fingers to the tips of my toes. Every year Regina gave us the opportunity to perform in shows as well as numerous appearances at public events. Each student, regardless of grade or ability, was given an equal opportunity to shine. Behind the scenes, Regina was giving us extra practice sessions, advice and constant encouragement. Ballet requires years of hard work and patience, but the results are so rewarding. Elegance, determination and commitment are a few of the many traits Regina instills in her students. I attended her classes from senior infants until well into my college years. I will be forever grateful to Regina, not only for the skills I have learned(and earned!), but for her kindness and friendship throughout.
