“A week before our wedding, we decided to buy a dance studio. I had been a high school teacher of English and a dance teacher for about ten years, and an opportunity arose that we couldn’t refuse. It was extremely nerve-wracking at first, wondering if we were going to succeed or if we had a knack for running a small business. But here we are in our fourth year, with about 85 students, a beautiful facility, and a great community reputation. We are also well-known for our Children’s Theater programs―we put on an amazing performance in only eight sessions. Our studio, Strauss Performing Arts, is actually located in the same complex as The Rosewood, where our wedding took place. Robert is still teaching second grade and coaching both the boys and girls tennis teams for Metuchen High School. Our most exciting news, however, is our daughter, Lillian Rose! She was born September 29, 2011, and is an absolute joy! She amazes us with her humor, her vocabulary, and with her genuine, sweet disposition. She loves to sing, dance, color, laugh, and never leaves home without Lamby. Because of the success of the dance studio and our theater programs, I was able to resign from my position at the high school and spend my days caring for Lily. There couldn’t be a more perfect situation. I get to challenge myself, have dance in my everyday life, stay fit, be creative, and still have a flexible lifestyle to accommodate the needs of our family. We continue to enjoy our home in Metuchen, which we purchased shortly before getting married, and are settling well into our life surrounded by family and friends.”
