"Mrs. Morscher has been a role model

is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing. It's the rhythm of your
life. It's the expression in time and movement, in happiness, joy,
sadness and envy. Dancers aren't made of their technique, but
their passion. Mrs. Morscher has always taught me that when I am
on the stage I should dance for the audience and no one else. She
has taught me so many things I can't even begin to write dow. All
know is I am truly thankful that I had the chance to experience every
moment with her."

grew up with all of the staff constantly supporting and teaching me,
shaping me into the person I am today. I learned more than dance
at RSB; I was taught determination, perfection, practice, discipline,
expression, and most of all to go for my dreams.”
