Caitlin Callahan has been at ASA since the summer of 2012, when she took her first Jazz class with us. Since the moment Caitlin has stepped into class with us, she has been a very special student! Caitlin comes to every class with a smile, positive attitude, and a thirst to improve. She isn’t afraid to try new things and will jump into any new class ASA has to offer. We’ve had the pleasure of watching Caitlin grow into a lovely dancer and look forward to seeing her continue to dance!
