“Noel was a pivotal part of my early dance education. Her energy made me want to work hard and be the best I could be from the first class. Having a dance teacher that truly wants you to be your best and will not let you give up even when things get hard is something I truly cherish. Now, as a professional dancer, I think back to memories from my training with Noel and can relate them to my current experiences. Knowing I am prepared for whatever the dance world throws my way is the product of an elite dance educator.” –Nicholas Lampson * BFA in Dance – University of Arizona * Giordano Dance Chicago
