Abbie had her first dance lesson today! Our church has partnered with a wonderful Christian ministry called Gotta Dance! Gotta Dance ministry gives professional dance lessons at a discounted rate as a blessing to the community so everyone can experience the joy of dancing and performing. The music, dancing, and outfits are always fun, clean, and modest. The teaching staff is passionate about using their gifts to bless others. Gotta Dance teaches dance lessons in one of our church's buildings. They have tap, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and special classes for little girls as young as two-years-old!
Abbie at home preparing for her dance lessons. She's talked about nothing else for an entire week, so today was a very big day for her. :) I think she learned her poses from Angelina Ballerina.
The Artist Director, Theresa Fietz-Goubran, is Abbie's dance teacher and she's wonderful! Theresa has been a professional Broadway dancer and has done choreography and taught dance lessons for many years. She did a wonderful job of making the first dance lesson fun for all the little ones. Abbie tried to copy her every move . :)
Abbie looking in the dance studio mirrors - so precious!
The first dance lesson!
Abbie will be in the Young Dancers class for 3-4 year-olds which begins next week, but today she joined the Two-Steppers (2-year-old) dance class for an introduction day. Two of Abbie's friends, Kaylee and Samantha, will be in the Two-Steppers class so they were all together today.
The Hulla Hoops help teach them to twirl.
My sweet friend Kelly Willetts asked me to make a little video incorporating my testimony around the topic of "Accepting the Skin You're In" for her to share with her middle school youth group girls. Kristine Tsui, an amazing high school senior and videographer in our youth group, made the video for me and she did a fabulous job! I hope you enjoy this 8-minute version of my testimony. :)
