Wow! It's hard to just say thank you for a fabulous conference. The faculty was top notch and so very valuable to all of my teachers. I cannot wait until the next one.

~ Anna Marie Leo

As I awake on my last day in Arizona, I can only feel the positive vibes running through my body. My biggest worries are gone and I am ready to have a WICKED amazing season. Now being a member of I.D.E.A. inspires and educates me and allows me to express myself fully.
