“My class was extremely fortunate to
participate in the grade 5 dance workshop
with Lesley Walker Fitzpatrick just last week.

gentle love and understanding, and infinite
patience. I was amazed by how well they
did. Students that are usually reticent and
reserved blossomed and took leadership
roles, some for probably the first time all

was awesome and made progress. It was a
wonderful day. I would like to thank Lesley,
and the Foundation, for giving us such a
