“I am very content. I love my life, my family and my relationship with Christ. The one thing I am not content with is me. My prayer is that God doesn’t leave me the same person from one day to the next, thus growing me into a better husband, a better father, and a better servant to the body of Christ.” Aaron Chen
As a mom it is so comforting to know that my child is in safe hands with Miss Caitlin. I can trust that my daughter will safely learn great technique and ballet vocabulary even at a young age while having a great time.
I love how Caitlin knows every child — their strengths and weaknesses — and knows how, who and when to push into the next level.
My kids love her so much that they bring her home with them! Even as they are playing, my girls teach their younger siblings everything they’ve learned, just the way Caitlin teaches them in class. It’s so sweet to watch!
I love how Miss Caitlin incorporates the elements of worship into each ballet class imparting her love for God into my children. She really knows how to take the tool (dance) and use it to worship the Lord! Everywhere we go, at church, at home, where ever their is music, my girls take the skills they learned in class along with their love for God imported to them and worship away!
