My Dear Connie,
So moved and impressed once again by the Danse 123 Show Awakening at Theatre Desjardins. So proud of our amazing Montreal warrior women Connie Rotella and all the team and teachers and talented students and performers who gave it their all last night! It was truly a magical show. This is the calibre of talent Montreal is made of - now it’s time to give this talent the time of day! Critics, publicity, love, support and appreciation! So much hard work goes into a show like this, and you guys nailed it - again! Bravo

Ma chère et belle amie,
Il y a longtemps que nous voulions travailler ensemble et les circonstances ont fait que ce n’est que dernièrement que c’est arrivé.
Quel plaisir que de te voir travailler, t’investir et te donner pour ce projet de vidéoclip ensemble , pas de demi-mesure avec toi… j’aime ça!
Tu as su me partager ta passion du mouvement, mais aussi m’insuffler ce petit côté “slikce” qui donne à ce clip une touche si “cool”.
Sur le “set”, tu étais en feu et tous les danseurs ont tellement de respect pour toi. C’est formidable de voir cette énergie que tu dégages, hyper stimulant et inspirant.
Bravo et Merci tellement
I cannot thank you enough for taking the time out of your extremely busy schedule to help us arrange a troop of fantastic dancers who performed at our show Thursday night.
I just love the choice of music and dance performance that accompanies our campaign video. The feedback has been amazing.
I was so proud of your team they did an incredible job!
Matthew Wood from Virgin Radio was in our audience and told me this morning that the event has 'legs' that it will grow and continue to succeed. Maybe so, but I told him that more importantly it had 'heart' because of wonderful people like you Connie and your dancers who are committed and love what you do with a smile and a big heart! A most heart felt thank you from all of us at the JUST FOR KIDS FOUNDATION, it is because of kind people like you that our events are so special!
Again, it was a real treat to work with you
Warmest regards and gleefully,
I’ve worked with a lot of talented people In my career, but working with Connie is a privilege. Hope to work with her for a long time...
