I just spent a week on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands sharing dance with a wonderful group of at risk youth. The community center associated with the St. Thomas Reformed Church invited me to work with their wonderful kids for a week before the end of the school year. We touched on ballet, modern, musical theater and tap! I had a wonderful time and hope to make this a recurring excursion! The kids were excited and talented and thoroughly enjoyed their week of dance. In addition to learning what I brought, they shared their own work with me, including two dances choreographed by one of the older kids. It was so joyous! Here they are in their final pose from Hairspray, You Can't Stop The Beat!
