"Grace. Through all the beautiful and difficult moments of this season, God has clearly shown His grace upon us." - Beth Patterson
"I have definitely felt stretched this year! My comfort zone tends to stay centered around the classical ballet bubble, and The Space in Between was one of the best things to have pushed me outside of that! I learned that I could get over my nerves about working with a partner, and loved getting to experiment with more edgy contemporary choreography." - Laura Peterman
"For this past season I was challenged in many ways that helped me learn once again the importance of relying on God and his love rather than just pushing through solely on my own power. I definitely felt my stamina and strength was pushed this year past my comfort zone. In the course of The Space in Between program I had over 80 lifts which, although tiring, was a wonderful opportunity for growth.” - Sam Opsal
