Read at the end-of-year faculty party to honor and celebrate my long-time friend and colleague Ann Sorvino, dance teacher extraordinaire, on her retirement.
Ann, when you first came to Stoneleigh-Burnham… hmm, when was it? Did we ever figure out which of the two of us came first?! Anyway, when I first came to Stoneleigh-Burnham, the dance program existed in the shadows and relative anonymity throughout the year until it suddenly burst forth in a spectacular and, to first-year people at least, completely unanticipated show the night before graduation. To me in those early years, you were this enigmatic person somehow working magic with kids though I had no idea how.
