Ballet Presentation on December 6th

Today, The King's Praise Ballet went to a nursing home to dance for the residents. They did really well, and everyone really enjoyed us coming! Not all of my girls were there - quite a few were out sick or traveling - but those who came were a big blessing! I may do a more in-depth post when I have more pictures, but for now, I couldn't wait to post these. I love my students so much!

Unfortunately, we didn't get a picture Ballet II's first song, O Come, O Come Emmanuel because of dead camera batteries.

We had Scripture readings taken from Matthew and Luke between the songs to tell the story of Christ's birth.

Miriam sang and I danced to Breath of Heaven.

I really like how the dresses swirl!

Only part of one of my two groups of little girls (ages 4-7) could come, but they stole the show, as usual. They danced to Away in a Manger.

They're just so cute!

Again, not everyone in Ballet I could make it, but these girls (ages 7-11) did a great job to Oh Holy Night.

Ballet II (ages 11-17, 3 girls were missing) were the shepherd dancers for Welcome to Our World.

These girls just started this September! One girl was missing, but they danced beautifully to We Three Kings.

For the finale, everyone danced to Virgin's Lullabye.

Praise God for a job well done! He was the Strength that pulled everything together.

Now, we can't wait to put all the dances together with the musical!

Anna, Something happened during this presentation. The Holy Spirit took over and through Our Lord Jesus Christ demonstrated the beauty and purity of Holiness in The Presence of The Lord ! All I could do was PRAISE Our Father in Heaven. The King's Praise Ballet is His idea, His plan for such a time as this !

All GLORY and HONOR to Jesus our Savior and baptizer in The HOLY Spirit !

Love, Mom

What lovely, lovely photos. Anna, you must do a beautiful work. And I have to say that I love the costumes... so feminine, modest, and graceful!!

My sisters and I belong to a Catholic Dance and Theatre Troupe (www.littleflowersclubs.com), and we love praising the Lord through dance as well. In fact, we have our "Silent Nativity" performances coming up next week: the Nativity story told completely through music and choreography!

Alyssa: yes, they're nice dresses! They've caused a lot of work, having to order them try to get the right sizes, cut and reattach the ruffle for girls whose dress is too long, and make slips for added modesty. But, it's all worth it in the end!

Sheila: It's neat that you have a flute student! You're right - teaching is very inspiring! I've learned a lot from it.

Bryant: That would be fun, wouldn't it? =) Right now pictures will just have to suffice.

Mom: Thanks for all the work you did to help make it possible.

Claire: That's neat that you're in a dance troupe as well! Your upcoming program sounds really neat - I'm sure it will be beautiful.
