Presentation of The King's Praise Ballet

On Thursday, November 16th, The King's Praise Ballet had it's first presentation! We danced at a nursing home in town, and had a wonderful time ministering to the people and praising God with dance. As well as the dances my girls and I did, many of us shared music as well, on the piano or various instruments. I have ended my first semester of dance classes, due to the busy holidays ahead, but I look forward to teaching again in January. God has blessed me with 21 students - many more than I had anticipated, and I am very thankful! My first teaching experience has been wonderful, praise God, and my girls have done so well! Below are a few pictures. Thanks to Mrs. Lavonne Hart for taking them for me!


My six little girls did the first ballet dance to Holy God, We Praise Thy Name

The second dance was once again done by my little girls, ages 4-6. They did a ribbon dance to Indescribable. I danced on the side, for them to follow along after.

I did a solo to Children of the Living God.

My 15 older girls, ages 7-16 did a ballet dance to Be Thou My Vision.

And as the final song, the older girls did a ribbon dance to I Can Only Imagine.

To God be the glory, great things He has done!

That's wonderful. ^-^ My friend Elizabeth has a dance camp during the summer, and she does something very similar. Praise the Lord that it went so well!

Wonderful! I'd love to see, especially because I've always been fascinated by ballet. I hope your pupils excel!

For some reason, comments by "~Bryant~" aren't being published, because for some reason Blogger has errors every time we try. I don't know what the matter is. Anyways, here's ~Bryant~'s comment:

OH, how lovely! Gorgeous pictures! I always wanted to do ballet, but the situation never was possible in my case, but I know that if the Lord had wanted me to do it, He would have brought it about ! :-)
