The Almont-Doñe Family

Leila is 8 yrs old and just completed the second grade. She loves to sing, dance and act. We initially found PDD because of the musical theatre classes but found that Leila was too young to join. We decided to enroll her in jazz class in 2018 and now she is in her second season in Petite Company ballet and jazz and has been a part of the ensemble in her first thearte production of Frozen Jr.  When asked if she wants to continue dancing and acting she says "Yes, because I love being on stage." Leila’s goal is to dance on pointe and have a lead role in a play.

Leila loves all her teachers at Pas De Deux and has grown so much as a dancer. She looks up to all of her student mentors and watches them in awe when they perform. We have found a great friends in our Pas De Deux ohana and as parents we are blessed to see our daughter make friends and "fit in" with kids that share the same interests as her.
