  • I have seen Elizabeth’s work with children and I have been impressed and in awe of her skills. She possesses a special and sincere rapport with them that is rare in a person so young. She has the heart of a child and a trusted role model.

We so enjoyed the show—I’ve never been able to just sit and watch and it was just gorgeous! Really, really beautiful! Thank you so much for putting that together—I don’t know how you do it! Anna was so enthralled and is ready to resume her ballet lessons.
