On Dec. 9-12, Ms. Tera’s Tap N’ Toes’ dancers performed at 4:15 p.m. for the residents of Argent Court.
This is the 10th year the studio has been doing their holiday performance for the grandmas and grandpas. They performed with the styles of ballet and tap to Christmas music as well as their competition dances.
The dancers are from ages 3 to 18. Ms. Tera (Tera Macmanus) teaches them at a young age the importance of performance courtesy by explaining to them why and how to curtsy after a performance when the audience is applauding. The grandmas and grandpas love the show every year and never miss a performance. It is the perfect way to put them into the holiday spirit.
Resident Stuart Addie stated, “I have been here for eight years going on nine, and I have loved watching the dancers grow throughout the years. The performance is absolutely perfect. Everyone is so good for their age, and it is great entertainment.”
Activity Director, Melanie Duke stated, “The residents love it every year. We all enjoy it when Ms. Tera brings her girls here for the holiday and share their spirit.”
Music Works Dance Teacher Connection has also awarded Ms. Tera this year. Their faculty voted and named Ms. Tera the DTC2020 Teach- er of the Year! They stated that she truly loves being a dance teacher, and they can see that.
Ms. Tera was very honored to receive this award, and was excited to hear that her mentors recognized her among hundreds of dance teacher friends.
She stated, “This is an incredible recognition and it’s quite humbling.”
