"My vote goes to the Studio Business issue with Jennifer Owens and Julie Jarnot of Artistic Fusion. I have deep admiration for artists who also develop sound business aptitude. Jen and Julie talked about how their strengths and interests complement each other—division of labor is so important in a partnership. Plus they’re located in my home state of Colorado!"

In the December issue, DT staff reflects on their favorite covers of the year. Associate editor Kristin Schwab chose March.

"Growing up as a bunhead, I’ll admit that I used to turn up my nose at the idea of dance team as a respected form. Jodi Maxfield’s story really validates that there is some great dance line training out there. And she is giving college dancers a serious alternative to majoring in dance. Plus, Utah was a beautiful place to shoot a cover!"

"I really loved our cover story on Judy Rice. I enjoyed her frankness about how inept she felt, starting out as a ballet teacher. And her willingness to start from scratch in the field, coupled with her work ethic, has brought her full circle—now she’s a beloved faculty member and in-demand on the competition scene. Meeting her at our DT Summit was icing on the cake! She was just as bubbly, witty and knowledgeable in person as she was on the page."

"I love that Bethany Marc-Aurele is a young entrepreneur who has a great business model and offers amazing training. (The same goes for all the sources in the story.) And she looks gorgeous! She has such clear goals and mission for her studio, and her commitment to continuing her training as a teacher is certainly a plus for her students as well as her faculty. She’s a strong role model for studio owners and she’s definitely inspired me."
