"I can't wait to see all of you again. I know things are uncertain right now, but we must keep hope alive."
In the photo, Debbie was surrounded by a group of young girls from the academy wearing their red and black dance outfits as they posed in the middle of the performance studio.
One person gushed over the children saying, "our precious babies! I love them so much!" Another person added, "a bounce of beautiful ladies." One of her dancers in the photo expressed their adoration for that particular class they were part of with Debbie.

"This protest was organized by the mothers in this community that want to Stand Up for Justice. As we started, being peaceful was emphasized."
Shortly after the news broke about the circumstances surrounding George's death, Debbie took to Instagram to pen a heartfelt message about the tragedy.
In a plea for justice, she said the pandemic had already caused a great deal of suffering and loss for people, and George's death was another loss in the world that she did not understand or want to accept.
