Kerry – Marie Hebert
20 years T.D.A.
T.D.A. Has been a big part of my life. I’ve made a lot of friends along the way. I`m excited to have won many top overalls and scholarships over the years while competing in dance. I`m looking forward to dancing at wonderland this summer I`m planning on attending college in the fall for nursing. T.D.A. has made a positive impact on me , Barb thanks for all the great times I will never stop dancing !
Kerry still with T.D.A. ( 20 years at Theatre Dance Academy )
Theatre Dance Academy has not only been a dance experience for me its been like a home. I`ve made long lasting friendships with classmates and relationships with both teachers and parents through my years at T.D.A. I always felt welcome and knew that this is where I belong. So much that when I moved to Toronto I asked my dad to drive me back and forth for dance classes in Oshawa . I just couldn`t leave my friends and the place I call home. Dance has helped me shape the person I`ve become and it will forever be a part of my life. I want to thank you Barb for making my dance experience at T.D.A. the best and being such a role -model for me growing up. I want to thank my parents for the never ending support they gave me and the encouragement through all my competitions and recitals, and dad thanks again for driving me to and from dance classes,it just doesn`t feel the same when I drive myself now

Thanks to Barb for always making our teachers – night special and most importantly for always making sure fun came first. I would`ve never imagined T.D.A. would have turned into my second home. The memories I have will be cherished forever.
This ones for you Oma wish you were here!
15 Years at T.D.A.
15 years at Theatre Dance Academy has made me feel alive ! The dancers really know how to dance and have a lot of fun. I started dancing at T.D.A. when they needed another person to hold an end of a limbo stick in my sister`s routine, I was chosen to conquer that task. That limbo stick didn`t just give me the chance to smile on a stage, but also gave me the reason to dance. I`m fortunate to have had the opportunity to explore the dance industry, sign with an agent, and ultimately be a professional dancer.
Thanks to all the ladies who put up with me over the years and thanks Barb for everything.

Thank you Barb for always pushing us to be our best. your energy, love for dance and enthusiasm keeps us amazed. Over the years I have made life long friends whom I will never forget – I love you sister! I don`t want to think about what my life would have been like without T.D.A. Thanks to everyone – you really are the best ! I`ll miss you all when I go away to school in September.
I’ll never forget my time at T.D.A.!
Dear Barb , You were with me as I grew up and I am so thankful for that! I hope you take a moment and think about how much all of us dancers love you , and everything you do!
I appreciate the wonderful opportunities you have given me from performing in professional shows to teaching students. you have helped me grow into the woman that I wanted to be and into the woman that I am! I don`t think you will ever know the true influence you’ve had in my life. I wanted to take a moment to say thanks!
Thanks for being such a wonderful role model and inspiration to me.
Over 20 Years at T.D.A.
When I started out at T.D.A. I knew that it would be a big part of my life. From the mini – kids to teaching, you have always been a great role – model. I’ve always looked up to you and admired your energy, enthusiasm and dedication. I can`t imagine my life without dance and I can`t thank you enough for all the great memories!
15 Years at T.D.A.
Completing 15 years of dance at T.D.A. was a means of expressing myself in a way that nothing else could. it’s fun, energetic, invigorating, inspiring, confidence building, while working every muscle group in your body ; WOW! Dance is more than costumes & make-up , it’s that tingly feeling you get whether your at the studio or on stage. No matter what was going on in my life , T.D.A. made me realize there was always one thing I was sure of in my life — Dance. I have made many great long friendships. I am sad to move on, but glad for the great experience and very exited to be going to Queens University for a Bachelor of Science (Honours) Program and I definitely will be an active member of the Queen’s University Competitive Dance Team .
Thank You Theatre Dance Academy for 15 great years of my life!
