We Love You Ms. Kim!

To celebrate Valentine's Day, this week is teacher appreciation week at MKDS! Dancers and their families can leave our amazing faculty notes and messages of thanks and appreciation in their very own Valentine's box.

Leave a Valentine for your favorite teachers!

Leave a Valentine for your favorite teachers!

We think all our faculty are absolutely wonderful, but we wanted to send an extra special shout out this week to our very own Kim Marak!

The one and only Ms. Kim!

The one and only Ms. Kim!

Kim is our Costume Director at MKDS and is the mom of alumni Sloan, and current dancers Margaux and Cleo.  Her husband Mark is the ultimate prop dad and as she frequently says, "The Marak family is all in!"   

Kim has been costuming our wonderful dancers for the past 10 years and words cannot describe how much we love and appreciate her!  From our tiniest babies to our most senior dancers, Kim has a knack for finding just the right costume to compliment and enhance our teachers' vision.  She works tirelessly to make sure that all our dancers are competition ready from their head all the way down to their toes.  From devising patterns for rhinestones to creating one of a kind accessories, she does it all.  

The looks of pure joy seen on our dancers faces and their squeals of glee when Ms. Kim has their costume ready is a testament to her amazing talent and vision!

During our annual company dress rehearsal which took place on Saturday and Sunday, Kim made sure to look at every costume closely, solving any issues that arose and made sure our dancers felt confident and ready to hit the stage. Calling it a huge task is an understatement, but Kim does it all with a smile on her face!

The MKDS Company would not be what it is without Ms. Kim and her dedication and commitment to our dancers. 

From all the dancers, parents and faculty at MKDS:  

We love you Ms. Kim! 

You make us all sparkle and we can never thank you enough!
