One quote that Dudley embraces and teaches her student to embrace is written by the great Michael Jordan.
If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks.
I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you.
If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
Dudley hopes to inspire each student to gain a love for the sport of rhythmic gymnastics. She conducts her classes in a positive manner and teaches her students the important values of hard-work, dedication, and respect. These values will aid them in all aspects of life whether it is education, sports, or in their everyday choices.
Dudley loves that CYC’s foundations are built on bringing out the best in its students. She takes the qualities that children naturally posses, such as curiosity, energy, and enthusiasm to learn, and uses them to bring out the best in each student.
