Nashville Recap

We had a fabulous time in Nashville last weekend – we took 30 students, GAFA staff and parent chaperones 12 hours away to hold workshops for “Peculiar Dance” School of the Arts at The River at Music City. For two days, the students worked their little tails off in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, modern, Hebrew and choreography. Melanie, Casey, Destiny and Grace all did an amazing job with the girls (and Noah 🙂 Now we’re in Dallas at the C3 conference at Fellowship Church – learning so much and being challenged every minute. I’ll post later about that. In the meantime, here are some pics from the Nashville trip. (courtesy of Matthew Ray – thanks, Matthew!)

We started out at Centenial Park and took some great shots of our GAFA girls…

Our Winston Salem Adventure

We’re in Winston Salem with about 20 of our dancers and a bunch of moms and staff for the 2007 Dance Revolution Conference. What a great event…world class instructors and hundreds of dancers have invaded the hotel in down town Winston and we are having a blast! The girls are working so hard and are exhausted after just the first half day – but it’s all worth it. They will leave this place having learned so much and been exposed to so much great talent in the Kingdom of God.

Here is a glimpse at their schedule – makes me tired just to look at it!

This was in the seniors ballroom this morning – their ballet class…

Last night they had a dance party with a futuristic theme. Everyone dressed up in costume…these two are some of the DR staff… I’m sure the hotel staff will be looking for these lamp shades today. 🙂

These are three of our girls – Hannah, Jessica and Haley. They were called up on the stage for having one of the best costumes. They won last year, too for their interpretation of Fred and Wilma for the “Back In Time” Theme. (our girls are so creative!)

Our dancers are the best! We have so much fun… this is (from left) Madison, Natalie, Felicia, Victoria and Denae.

OK – so this last one I just couldn’t resist. His face has been blurred to protect his identity. (and because he was dancing so crazily that my camera wouldn’t focus) This was in the teacher’s ballroom (classes for studio teachers, not DR instructors…) (Lynne and I think this is Cameron in 20 years if there isn’t an intervention.)

See you all when I get back!
