I joined The Ridgefield School of Dance faculty 14 years ago, and while I have many favorite memories, there is one that immediately springs to mind. A few years ago, I was sitting in my office when in walked a very young pre-ballerina in her pink leotard, tights and ballet slippers.  She saw a pair of pointe shoes on the floor next to me, and within a split-second she had her little slippered feet tucked inside the much larger pointe shoes.  I grabbed my camera and took a must-have photo - little did I know that this would become the image behind the "Start Small, Dream Big" campaign and the photo now hangs in my office.
