"WOW! I am overwhelmed and blown away with the assembly you and Gregangelo put together for us today.
The quality of the show and talent was/is outstanding and very impressive. All aspects were really top-notch.
The kids haven't been that excited and engaged in a performance in quite awhile. Both groups of students
(younger and older) responded with sincere enthusiasm. Even my "sophiticated 6th graders" got into the
performances and were excited and intrigued by what they saw.
Your welcome from the ropes was a terrific way to begin the program. The rolling dervish, of course, is amazing
to watch. I can't imagine anyone being able to spin like that and not get totally dizzy! Of course, the dancer and
contortionist were both unbelievable. I was watching kids trying to copy the movements they were seeing.
It was really cute!
Please convey my thanks to everyone for a wonderful experience for our students and staff. This is an assembly
I will be recommending to colleagues for other schools. Feel free to use my name as a reference anytime for any
of the performers! They are all truly amazing. It was especially fun for me to see you in action. I am very proud of you!
