This is the first in a line of knitted doll items honoring Linda Haas founder & director of The Academy of Dance & Gymnastics with locations on Jefferson Ave in Newport News, VA & Mercury Blvd in Hampton, VA. My daughter began dancing @ the school at age 4 & joined the Academy of Dance Showbiz Kids @ age 6. She has been a company dancer for the past 12 years. Since this school has been such a major part of her life I feel honored to promote the school in my designs. This throw measures 17in W x 20in L. It can be used as a doll blanket, a lap blanket, table or wall art. This is also a unique gift for any rising AOD'er. The blanket's message is " stars are made at the AOD".The blanket is shipped by priority mail (padded envelope). The blanket is paired with a black & white dotted fleece blanket & a cell phone themed sheet set w/matching pillows. Please email me for more information about any applicable discounts or changes in shipping costs for combined shipments.
