Our Visit to Children’s Hospital

IMG_0652“You can dance anywhere, even if only in your heart.”  -Anonymous

Our staff and dancers recently had the opportunity to visit Children’s Hospital in Birmingham and present our 300+ costume donation to some of their patients at their recent Princess Party in January.  We were thrilled to be able to spend time with these precious young ladies and had a blast putting together ballerina themed crafts, playing dress-up, and sharing some dance secrets with one another!  We are humbled at this beautiful opportunity to share the happiness of dance and hope to provide many more opportunities for our students and staff to give back to our community in the future.

Click here to see some of the magical moments that transpired during our trip! (Photo album courtesy of Children’s Hospital)
