For many young dancers, you always dream about performing on a really big stage. Whether it be a broadway stage or perhaps performing with a famous celebrity like Jennifer Lopez, dance teachers try to motivate their students to work hard and set high goals for themselves.

I know growing up, I had am amazing dance teacher who always tried to push us to be the best dancers we could be and I will never forget her encouragement. Once a dancer has truly, "made it," I'm sure it's a feeling and a day they never forget. So this is great for Mara.

If you're going to the show this year try to look for her on stage.
