BALLET DIVISION INFORMATION
Thank you LTM Dancers!
LTM Company dancers performed at Heritage Estates Assisted Living Facility and were wonderful, as always. The dancers entertained the residents with excerpts from The Snow Queen and warmed their hearts with handmade gifts and cards to brighten their spring days. I'm so proud of all of you for your dedication, talent, and respect for your audience. Love you! ~ Shelly
