“I would like to give a huge shout-out to our staff so when you hear our name please stand or come out and give a wave. First of all I would like to say thank you to Jodi Bjornerud, our office manager, and to our teachers Aleesha Jasper, Emerson Strykowski and Jenna Anaka,” said Kristen Weber-Karcha, instructor. “Without all of these ladies our studio wouldn’t exist, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I would also like to thank all of our backstage and front of house volunteers that consist of graduated dancers and parents, we couldn’t put this show on without you. Thank you to Mark Dunlop in the sound booth, who has been here with us since Wednesday after school. We always love working with you.”

She added, “New to working with us this year is Dustin Wilson who has taken over the videography for us. We really look forward to seeing the fabulous show you put together, so thank you.”

Weber-Karcha also said, “I would like to thank my sister Lindsay Magnusson for being the backstage manager and helping with props and anything else we have needed all year, she’s always there for me whenever I need a hand.

I also want to thank my kids Keegan and Kamdyn and my husband Garrett, they don’t get to see a lot of me sometimes, especially during competition and recital season. They are here to help when needed and sometimes end up spending 10 hours at a competition with me and I really love that they are a big part of our Dance Family.”
