“When I met Leslie I breathed a sigh of relief. You see, I had been advocating for the protection of childhood in dance for 18 years at my studio, but I didn’t know anyone at the industry level who was really putting their careers on the line to do so until I met Leslie Scott. What Leslie has created in YPAD is a invaluable and necessary resource in the dance industry–a beautiful community and a voice for studio owners, choreographers, teachers, parents and students. I knew I wanted to be a Visionary Sponsor of this movement and I hope that in doing so, other dance leaders are inspired to support this movement as well. Thank you, Leslie, for being a bright light to so many!”
