Valicia; daughter of Kennedy
“Being a dance mom is getting to spend extra special time with my daughter. Getting to know her on so many different levels. Seeing my baby girl at her best and at her worst. Loving to see her grow mentally, physically, and emotionally. Through her eyes I see hope and possibility.”
“Life of a dance mom is more than just hair, makeup, driving to practices and competitions, packing bags, etc. It’s long days of managing sass and big emotions. It’s getting filled up with caffeine so I can cheer as loud as I can. It’s playing photographer. Being a dance mom gives me opportunities to watch my daughter’s confidence bloom, her sass explode, and to watch her do something she truly loves!”
Latoya L.; Mom of Christen Devani
Life as a Dance Mom for me started in 2010 when my daughter, Christen Devani was just 2 years old. I’ve been full forced in it ever since! I always knew that she was a natural dancer when she started walking on her tippy toes & always danced to Beyonce any chance she got. (Lol) Now my daughter is soon to be 15 and she’s a Pre-Professional Dancer & I couldn’t be more proud of her elevation. From the multiple late night rehearsals, traveling, extra fees, foot rubs, back rubs, Orthopedic visits, I’ll forever cherish each and every experience just to watch her perform. Thank you for the honor!
The life of a dance mom can be tough. You have to be a taxi driver, seamstress, hairstylist and make up artist. All the stress seems to fade away once your kid hits the stage. At that moment, you’re only their biggest fan. To see the completely come alive and live out their passion – it’s all worth it! I wouldn’t trade this life for anything!

M oments to cherish. Our kids grow up so fast, because after it’s all said and done, these are our babies, no matter how tired we get from late comp nights, sweaty we get from running back and forth for quick changes, tears we wipe from falls, failures and achievements, pokes in the finger from safety pinning convention numbers, losing Bobby pins and mini attitudes because you want the 100th picture..we are killing it as dance moms !
