Dance

Summer 2014 has been fun so far….Gator started the fun with a trip to Olympia, Washington (suburb of Seattle) to attend Northwest Dance Intensive.  She had the most amazing opportunity to dance with some of the greatest teachers, including Paloma Herrera from American Ballet Theater.

Paloma!

Paloma!

The intensive was 3 weeks, and to say I missed her is an understatement!

Here are a few picture of the performance the night of pick-up. (this was after a full day of classes!!! (Dedication, determination, and strength.)

At the end of the night the students were presented with awards. The guest teacher who presented them is from Italy and speaks very little english…..it was quite the laugh, listening to him announce each girls name. First and last!!!

When you put 3 girls in a dorm room together for weeks they become great friends!

What a wonderful, learning, challenging, and fun time Gator had. We were are so proud and excited for her.

Grace and Peace,
