Rhee Gold, publisher of Dance Studio Life magazine, announced that Luna co-founders, Patricia Reedy and Nancy Ng, are recipients of one of six of the first “Generous Heart” awards.
Dance Studio Life reported, “Throughout a decade of journalism, Dance Studio Life has given attention to those who do important, innovative work in dance education and service to the dance community… the efforts of the risk takers and generous hearts who have earned our respect and serve as inspiration for the entire community.”
Reedy and Ng’s award honors Luna’s nationally acclaimed family-based children’s dance programs and their advocacy of professional learning for dance educators. Through MPACT (Moving Parents and Children Together), School and Community Alliances, and Studio Lab, Luna offers developmentally appropriate, creative-based dance classes to all children. Luna’s Professional Learning services increase comprehensive, standards-based teaching practices for a wide range of educators from studio instructors to college professors to social workers.
