The Aaron Family

Johann and Melissa are proud parents to 2 daughters, Reese (16) and Rayna (13) and a naughty chocolate lab named Zeke. They are an active duty Navy family who have lived in southern California; southern Spain; and have been stationed in Hawaii since 2014 when both daughters began dancing at PDD. Rayna, in beginning hula, and Reese in beginning ballet and beginning jazz. Rayna is a KPOP enthusiast and straight A - 8 th grader in student council at Pearl City Highlands Intermediate.

Reese continued at PDD trying out for and performing in Sr. Companies for Hip Hop and Contemporary last year and traveling to Nationals in Las Vegas. She is currently a Junior and Honors/ AP student at
Radford High School. She dances at PDD in the Sr. Hip Hop Company and will perform with the Elite Production as well during this year’s competition season.

As a military family with our biological family so far away, we are so thankful for the PDD Ohana. This studio is truly a home away from home for our daughter to not only train with talented teachers who love and embrace her for her who is, but also mentor her and provide opportunities to stretch her talents and shine. We’ve seen the growth and development of our daughter and many other dancers at the studio in the 5 years. We are truly blessed to be a part of this Team.
