If this was easy, it would be called football.

Our children are very blessed to have Mrs. Elesia Brasell as the owner of the Monroeville, Al, Applause Dance Studio.  I am constantly amazed at the training the students under her watchful eye receive.  Her  students' performances WOW the crowds and I myself could not believe the skill level of her students.  SO, I asked if I could take my camera over and spend the afternoon with her class.  Having worked with these girls briefly already, I had been trying to get back over to her studio since Christmas.  When I found out more about Mrs. Elesia, I was no longer surprised why her students were such performers.  Elesia herself, started dancing when she was 5 and was awarded a full scholarship at the prestigious Alabama School of Performing Arts.  Her professional career began in 1982 with the Burchfield Ballet Company, Inc.  Her accomplishments included Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and various contemporary repertoires.  She also has guest artists come to Monroeville to give classes for her students as well. Some of those include:  Miss Dorothy Lister from The Jeoffrey Ballet School; Elie Lazar from Lazar New York; Christopher Dean from Radio City Music Hall; and Laura Villalobos from the Montgomery Ballet. Through her affiliation with the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes, National Discovery Network and Mike Miller Dance Team, she has connections that enable her students to have opportunities usually afforded to those in large cities.  

I don't know her level of Cheese Straw making...that is yet to be determined.  But hey.....she can always buy some and TELL me that she baked  them (OR she can call Sheila to make a Key Lime Pie for me) ....After all...she can't be PERFECT...right?  SO until I find out more about Elesia's baking skills....I'm leaving her ranking with me at a 15 out of 10.   Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1) Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-2Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-2 Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-3Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-3 Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-6Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-6 Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-5Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-5 Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-4Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-4 Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-7Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-7 Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-9Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-9 Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-8Deby Andrus 1 (1 of 1)-8 b

Deby this is so sweet and oh so true:) Mrs. Elesia has been in BB's life since she was 5 and when Brelyn started dance 12 years later it was as if she took her under her wings and loved her at first sight. She is a busy woman but the biggest hearted most giving woman I know. I love her to pieces

Wow such a touching tribute to Elisa! She is. A wonderful inspiration to all her students and their families as well! She deserves all the recognition she can get! I am proud to say my daughter take dance from Applause Dance Studio! These pictures are absolutely stunning and capture the skill to perfection that Elisa instills in her students each and everyday!
