"The Manger Way" pictures

A photo album of "The Manger Way" has been made, with captions and glimpses of the production. You can never capture things in their entirety, but this gives memories to those who saw it, and a taste for those that didn't. Click this link or the picture below.

Praising God for "The Manger Way!"

God did it again. He brought a production together in more amazing ways than I could imagine. Both presentation nights went well, and though the first night I was missing 2 dancers due to illness, tonight all 62 dancers and actors were there, and did very well. Many people also came to watch and were blessed.

It's hard to believe it's over... it's always bittersweet. I am looking forward to the holiday break though, and preparations for the next production already began (during Thanksgiving break). :)

To God be the glory - great things He has done!

Dancing at Merry Wood Lodge

The King's Praised Ballet danced at a nursing home this afternoon. The girls did a great job, and those who watched were blessed, praise God! We were missing four students due to sickness or travel (praying for a speedy recovery!), but those that came danced beautifully for the glory of God.

Scripture was read between dances, to give the true story of Christ's coming to earth.

Sweet little angels - and a big one to help.

This dance never seems to stop - couldn't get a picture of them still until the end! =)

Angels everywhere!

Touching duet portraying Mary and Joseph (danced by a father and daughter)

Fabric adds a royal touch.

You can't help but smile during this dance. :)

It's fun to make different formations using these vibrant colors.

"He made a way in a manger... to make a way to the cross."

I'm always amazed when I see pictures of my students all together, since they look like such a big group, but I know them each by name and personality. I am a very blessed teacher!

Thanks to my dad for taking these pictures, my sister for running the sound, and my mom for arranging the visit!

Dancers and Wreaths

As soon as I saw the wreath put up over the mirrors when they decorated for Christmas at Fountain of Grace, I knew I wanted to try to get dance pictures using it.

It was difficult to position to get a lot of people in and still let the camera see, though!

Then, I had to deal with the camera flashing. So, the picture didn't quite work as planned, but we had some laughs trying to take it!

Stretching II and III

On Tuesday I taught the last classes of the fall 2010 semester. It's gone by so quickly!

I combined classes, since we're going to dance at a nursing home on Thursday, so each class had twice as many girls as normal. Ballet II and III were the last classes that took together, and since I actually had my camera along, I decided to snap some pictures.

These girls have worked hard and are developing great flexibility!

Many have achieved their splits, and the rest are almost there.

Great work, girls! It's been fun to work with you and see you grow as dancers this year!

Come to "The Manger Way!"

The presentations will be here before we know it! If you're in the area, I hope you can come. There's still a lot to do, but God is bringing the details together!
