St. Anthony of Padua Chapel was a beautiful place to dance and what a joy it was to see the residents beaming faces as we joined together in worshipping the Lord!  They welcomed us warmly and were a delight to talk to after the program.

What a blessing to minister with you during the 2014-15 season!!  You helped bring glory to God and the joy of the Lord to others as we danced!  It was a great season!

Thanks to all the dancers and parents for your commitment to Freedom to Dance and for coming to lead worship at Breakthrough Ministries throughout the year!!  And a big thank you to Terriann for taking and sharing the pictures of our last Breakthrough of the season!  It was a lot of fun to have her, Pastor Dave, and our other Breakthrough friends join us during the last free dance!

We pray you have a relaxing and blessed summer!  If we do not see you on July 8 at the Catholic Eldercare chapel, we will look forward to seeing you in September!!

The end of our 2014-2015 season is fast approaching!  It’s been a fantastic year worshiping the Lord through dance.  And it’s been a blessing to have you as part of the team!

We will be having a party between classes (7 pm) on the last practice night to celebrate our year!!

May 26 – PARTY!  We’ll be celebrating with some snacks and will run through our Breakthrough songs one last time.  Parents and other family members are invited.  We ask that you bring some sort of snack to share to this party…  fruit, veggies/dip, rice crispy bars, jello squares, chip/dip…. anything your dancer would love to share with everyone; however, you won’t need to bring that many.

May 31 – Last Breakthrough night.  See previous post for details.
