Happy retirement Ms. Valerie!

Dance Arts Los Alamos :: Happy retirement Ms. ValerieMs. Valerie has been involved with DALA for eighteen years. Ms. Valerie has been a part of the DALA family as a volunteer, dancer, parent, Board president, pianist, choreographer, costume mistress, faculty member, Executive Director, and Administrative Director.

Over the years she volunteered hundreds of hours to our school. Many dancers in Los Alamos took their first dance lesson from Ms. Valerie and continued to learn to love dance from Ms. Valerie through the years. Ms. Valerie’s positive attitude, patience, and attention to detail have inspired all of us.

We are grateful for her vision and commitment. Her dedication has helped to make DALA everything it has become. She will be sorely missed and impossible to replace. We know you all join us in wishing Ms. Valerie well as she starts a new chapter in her life.
