Hi, my name is Morgan Thomson, I am Sharon’s daughter and here is my view of living in Newport Beach!
Life at the studio is a whole other world. It is my second home. And they are my second family. I learn to be a better dancer every day, and I get to enjoy my time there.
My dance teacher, Shannon Novak, is my second mother. She is an amazing teacher, and she insprires me to be a better dancer everyday. She is always there for me, and is a friend when I need one. She teaches me how to put my heart and soul into my dancing. Shannon, herself is an amazing dancer, like none other. Dancing is her life, and she is very commited and good at what she does. She started teaching when she was only 14 years old, and now she owns a very successful studio in Costa Mesa, California. Endeavor School Of The Arts.
My friends there are like family. I may be the youngest one in my class, but it helps me become a more mature and skilled dancer. The classes are harder, but it is always better for me to work harder, and accomplish more things.
Endeavor is a very skilled studio. We have won Move Nationals 2 years in a row, with the choreography of Shannon Novak. I just returned from Palm Springs for Move Nationals, where we won the finals! We work all year round to be successful dancers.
I thank Shannon for everything she does to help me and all the dancers at Endeavor become the best dancers we can be.
