Kanan is a role model is so many ways. Firstly, she has an amazing work ethic. She gives up her weekends every week to help her students. She is so positive and energetic – people feel inspired by being around her and being taught by her. She has incredible patience and perseverance – some of her students require more help in learning and she is always able to help them develop and become more confident. I believe what makes her so special and inspirational is how she always wants to help others. The impact of the work she does is amazing and far reaching. It’s not only her students and parents who are positively influenced but thousands of people within the community. By performing and supporting many events Kanan has brought joy, hope, belief and inspiration to so many people through the art of dancing. My daughter has been attending Kanan’s classes for 4 years now and her role model is Kanan. She has taught her so many important values such as respect, patience, helping others and working hard. I believe all her students are inspired by her. Kanan does what she does because she loves helping others and adding value to people’s lives. She doesn’t want or expect anything in return. She does it because is so passionate about the art of dancing and the amazing influence it can have on people’s lives. I have attended many of community events and the audience are always are so happy and engaged. I watch some of the videos back and think WOW – look how many people have been influenced and inspired by these performances. As a parent I am so proud of what my daughter has achieved through dancing and how she has been able to touch people lives through dancing. All of this is made possible by Kanan’s contribution to helping the community.
