Dancing at MerryWood Lodge

The King's Praise Ballet shared at MerryWood Lodge (a local nursing home) this afternoon. Everyone did very well, things went smoothly, and people were blessed - praise God!

These less formal presentations are nice, because it gives performance experience to the dancers (thus they're not as nervous at the "real thing!") and it teaches them to share with and love the elderly, who can't get out much or at all, and so enjoy children coming to them.

Below are a few pictures from the afternoon. Thanks to my dad for taking them!

"Let His praises ring throughout the earth!"

These colors are so fun, and the skirts are definitely "props" as much as costumes for this dance!

Seeing young girls worship... a precious thing.

"Let all creation stand and sing!"

"He's got the whole world..."

One of these little ones was a little reluctant to go out to dance, but she did very well once she got there! It's fun to see little ones - and big ones! - overcome shyness and dance for the Lord.

"For her it was one choice to make..."

"Our brothers and sisters are paying the price..."

It was challenging to dance with a low-hanging chandelier, especially when using long ribbons! But, the girls did well at avoiding it, and nothing got tangled in it, though it did get bumped a few times. ;)

"No greater love" - a duet choreographed by students

"Ignites a candle, and makes His home..."

Other students choreographed a trio. Such joy on their faces!

In-action - fun shot!

I can't get over how pretty these colors are together! :)
