Mrs. Elaine & Mrs.Tina,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for offering a dance program in a Christian environment. My girls have been in dance with you since they were 4 years old and we would never go anywhere else. I grew up taking dance classes in a secular dance school that picked out very inappropriate music & immodest dance costumes for the recitals. So, as a parent raising my girls to be modest & to honor Christ in all they do, I am sincerely grateful to have the opportunity to enroll them in a dance class where they can do just that. I love the modesty of the outfits, the worship music, & especially the small Bible lessons that are shared with them each week. I love that Christ is always the focus. I think it is such a great ministry to those children (& their families) who aren't regularly going to church or studying the Bible in their homes, or those who just come here because it's affordable. You are making Jesus available to everyone who comes into those rooms each week & I think what you are doing is more important than most people realize. It's just really a great thing!
Every dance performance I come to see brings me to tears. The dancing (with the music) as worship to our Lord is so moving & meaningful to me. I feel like that is what it will be like to dance before the Lord in Heaven one day. I know others feel the same way. It's a beautiful experience and you all do a wonderful job. I really loved seeing last year's recital in the Worship Center, too. That was so much better than the chapel. It was so much easier to find a good seat & the setting made a big difference for me. I hope you will continue to hold the recitals there.
Thank you again for providing a modest, Christ-centered environment for the girls, and for all the hard work you all put into the dancers each year. You are truly appreciated by this mom & I know by others, too. If it weren't for Dance For His Glory, my girls would probably not be in dance classes. I would not want them to be exposed to some of the secular music, dance moves, & costumes that are required by the majority of secular dance schools.
Thanks again & I pray you are blessed beyond measure for honoring the Lord through your ministry.
