A first….

This year has brought about new opportunities for our sweet Gator. She made a big jump and started a new ballet program.
For the past 8 years dance has been a large part of her life. She started at Alpharetta Dance Theatre at the age of five and was in the ballet and jazz program. She LOVED it and soon moved on to more classes, competitions, and performances. We soon learned all about the world of dance and different methods of training and levels of dance. It was in 2010 that we made the move to Still Pointe Studios. A moved we will always hold dear to our hearts. It was at Still Pointe that Gator learned so many valuable life lessons and the most important thing that God gave her the ability to dance and that she should always be dancing for Him. (It was super sad to leave when our family made the move to Canada.) Since arriving here in BC Gator has grown, learned and now is doing the Pre-Professional program at Avant Dance Co. When she was five she danced for 2 hours a week, now that she is 13 she is dancing 16 plus hours a week! WOW…what difference a few years can make!

Avant has provided many new opportunities and the first of them being an audition for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet!

It was nice to be with the others girls from her class for the audition as it made it a little less nerve-racking!

It will be a few weeks before we hear anything….but Gator is not worried….she knows she did her best and that’s all that matters!

I’m sure I will be posting more dance photos as this year continues…I will try not to post too many!!!!

Grace and Peace,
