Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!  All of us at Turn It Up Dance Challenge are thankful for being able to work with such talented dancers throughout the year!

Enjoy the day with your family and eat lots of turkey and stuffing and potatoes and cranberry sauce and more turkey and more stuffing and you get the idea :) Don't forget to save room for dessert!
