Longer Final Christmas Practice – Dec 9

Our final practice is this Tuesday, Dec 9, for our Christmas dances!  We are requesting that Joy Dancers stay later (7:15pm) and the Glory Dancers come earlier (7 pm), so we have an opportunity to put all the parts for “O Holy Night” together!

We realize this is a late notice, so please do the best you can to rearrange your schedules!

Thanks so much!  To God be all the glory!
