"My training at PAD completely prepared me for the tough mental and physical challenges of my contract. My body was accustomed to the rigorous demand required for the production shows and I had learnt how to condition myself to be able to maintain this through out the nine months. I am so thankful for my time at PAD and I would not be where I am today without the training and support I received." – Kaitlyn Barnard, Dancer for Carnival Cruise Lines
