May 3, 2016 update

I am now excited to announce that Southwest School of Dance has been sold to Larvita Legrand McFarquhar, a former student of mine. She has bought a new, large facility in Marshall so there will be two very large studios with sprung floors, mirrors and barres and a huge gymnastic room. She is very well qualified to teach dance and gymnastics and the studio will be in excellent hands. 

Larvita has been trained and has worked along side our National Olympic Coaches Marta Karolyi, Valero Liukin, as part of the Tops Program (Talent Opportunity Program). She was trained at SWSD, acted and danced in professional musical theater productions and was a scholarship student with Gus Giordano. The links below also provide a review of some of her work

She has asked me to teach and choreograph at SWSD but I will now have time to visit family, especially grandchildren, and travel.
