[In their own words]

Dave Bedell – Sound Man
"The dance company provides an opportunity for people of any age to learn the technique, movements, and skills necessary to demonstrate the beauty, grace, and art of dance.  Whether you are a novice or advanced dancer, interested in improving your technical proficiency or further developing your love of the art, the Dance Company has a place for you."

Lori Jo – Dance Captain
"The dance company is a family type environment, where dancers from the ages of 6 and up can come and have fun - it's a dance company where one can build on their self-confidence/self esteem and feel like they are part of a professional Broadway show!  The dance company is a show that travels...we'll come to you, contact Deb Lombard about having us perform for you at your function."

Celeste Crowley – Founding Member/Costumes
"The Dance Company is a pleasant alternative to dance schools and competition dance teams. We don't take ourselves too seriously.  There isn't a lot of pressure but there is lots of fun. It's not working out working out but it's a great workout.  It's learning dance steps as part of a Broadway number.  Each week you feel like your building to something that resembles entertainment that you watch on TV or pay to go see.  It's not at the same level but we look good.  No one thinks they're going to become professionals.  OK some will, but they don't act like they think they're great.  Everyone is part of the group.  It is not about the individual.  If someone is featured it is or the good of the show, not for the sake of spotlighting the individual.  The year starts off with a specific plan but adjustments are made as needs occur.  This helps keep everyone flexible."

Dave Howe – Audience Member/Proud Grandpa
"Deb Lombard is a young woman (grandmother too!) with a passion for dance - the delight it brings to spectators and participants, the fitness it promotes in the discipline, the satisfaction it brings to dancers who learn to use their body movements creatively, the smiles it brings out of the audience, the joy of dancers who "made it to Broadway."   Deb Lombard's dance company is vitality, movement, creativity and joy."

Kim LeClair - Performer
"Dance Company is a group of FRIENDS that come together once a week to do what they love, weather their good at it or no. These people come together to dance, act, and sing all in one. They all enjoy performing and love to work with others."

Tammy Desjardin – Parent/Volunter
The Dance Company to me is? It’s Fun and entertaining, and very well done. It’s a professional group of talented dancers looking to please its audience. t's laughter, humor, and seriousness, incredible, all wrapped up in one. The highlight is the smiles on the Dancers' faces as they perform.
