"Beyond Bethlehem" Pictures and Slideshows

In the midst of Christmas travels, preparing for the start of dance classes for the spring, with all of the choreography and costume searches, and preparing for our cast party, I never took time to upload many pictures from "Beyond Bethlehem." But, now they are up for your enjoyment! It's nothing like being at an actual presentation, but it does give you a taste of the production.

If you're interested, click the below links to see pictures, slideshows, and a dance from the production.

Cast Picture Slideshow - introduces the characters
Album of pictures from Dress Rehearsals - outlines the story with pictures and captions
Picture slideshow - shares pictures and memories from the rehearsals
A Silent Prayer - The dance that opened the musical, in which I portray the prophetess Anna interceding for her nation. It is a silent video, since I had to remove the music for the upload due to copyright.

It's hard to believe it's all over... But there are plenty of things coming up in the future that are keeping me busy!

Thats so great! I just love reading about what you are doing with your single years, its such an encouragement! God has blessed you with talents and you using Him for His glory is beautiful!

Dakota Meg said...

Wow... that's so beautiful. My sister has taught small children ballet before and your production has inspired. Maybe we'll do something too. It looks like it was a lot of work though...

SinginginHisName: Thanks for your encouragement! It's fun to share and hear from others.

Dakota Meg: Yes, it's a TON of work! It pretty much took the majority of my time from September through December. But, at the end and looking back, it was definitely worth it. Many people were touched by it, and God was lifted up!

Looks like you put together another good musical!

Watching the album pictures on the slideshow gave me a sense of the production.I appreciate all the captions you made as that must have been alot of work.

While I was watching 100 Huntley Street(a Canadian Christan program) they had a 10 minute report on Ballet Magnificat.Here is the link if you would like to see it.

Robert: Thanks for the link! That's a great report on Ballet Magnificat! I've seen the hiding place in person and talked with/taken classes from the dancers on the report, so it was fun to watch them again.
