Dear Dance Friends,
It is already December and 2010 is right around the corner.I sincerely hope you all have had a great
The Gift of Giving.
The present that we give through teaching dance does not have a specific month or date. It is a
constant motion. Giving the gift of dance makes me realize how rich my life is and how easily I can
make a real impact on those that I teach by sharing my knowledge. And to give a part of myself away
through my dance present gives me pleasure knowing that I have taken care of someone. Just like my
teachers did for me.
Kirby Reed, International master teacher, choreographer,
colleague and dear friend has suffered two severe strokes
a short time ago. He is now in rehabilitation and needs
financial support for his recovery.
It would be great to give him a gift, like the present he
has given to so many dancers.
Donations can be sent to:

I wish you all a glorious holiday season! And hope to see you in 2010 to share my gift with you!
Kind regards, Pattie Obey
