Ballet Gloria

Last Monday we had our "recital" for our Ballet Gloria program. This program has been such an awesome experience. The girls that teach the classes are sisters that are in the San Antonio Ballet Company and teach classes at our Church for free. It isn't a traditional dance class but they do so some work on the different positions and techniques. They instead focus on teaching them to dance for the Father. 


They put so much work into the party they threw for the girls (and a couple boys too!) There were 5 different crafts for the kids to do - making crowns (Princess crowns since they are Princesses of the Father) or whatever else they wanted to make out of pipe cleaners, there were strips of fabric with pony tail holders to make pretty pony tail holders, card stock to make holiday cards or gift tags, hand/face painting and beaded candy cane making. Abby seemed to enjoy both the painting of her hand and making the beaded candy cane. She did such an excellent job beading the pipe cleaner all by herself! 


There were also books set up in an adjoining room to the open area we were in to read Christmas and ballet stories. Then the mom of the ladies that teach the class is apparently a photographer and she set up a mini-studio to take pictures of everyone. We got one of Abby and then another one of Abby and Micah together. They are so cute! I wish I had a scanner to share with them with ya'll!

Then we all went down the hall and the girls practiced then did a little recital showing all the parents and other classes what they have learned so far this fall. Abby's class did their Princess walks on releve across the floor. They also recited along with all the other classes the memory verse they have been working on learning this semester. 1 Peter 1:1-3   





I took a video of Abby doing her walk across the floor and will upload it later. These photos are from her showing me her Princess walk between their practice round (where she kind of walked across the floor with her fingers in her mouth) and when they did it for everyone (where she walked on releve with holding the teachers hand, actually did the full turn in the middle and then finished walking! yay!)

I love that Abby is getting the opportunity to learn dance and how it can be used in a way to express her love to the Lord. What a blessing to have these young ladies offering their talents and services for free.
