      Alice, thank you for your words. I loved dancing at Tufts, and yes, I do remember you! I look forward to sharing this project with you and love having your support! It means a lot. Thank you!

      Hi Oni, Danny M./Tufts forwarded the Kickstart info. Best wishes with your project. We are truly happy that you are continuing in dance, and your video shows you to be as beautiful a dancer as always. We've had a photo of you in the Jackson hallway for many years. I don't know if you remember me as you didn't take my classes, but I saw you perform in Danny's work. Best wishes in all of your endeavors! Alice T/Tufts
