Our senior company, In Motion Dance Company, recently traveled to Winston-Salem, NC to attend Dance Revolution. Dance Revolution is a Christian dance conference held in multiple locations throughout the U.S.
The dancers participated in group fundraisers and some of them fundraised on their own as well. Fundraisers included a Spirit Night at Chick-fil-A, selling hair bows in the lobby, babysitting, and selling pies. We are so thankful for how FSD families participated in these fundraisers! It really helped the girls work towards their goal.
What did the weekend look like? Twelve dancers, four instructors, and three chaperones met at FSD on Friday morning and drove to Winston-Salem. That evening, the group had pizza at the hotel and attended the DR kick off party at the convention center. The party had a “holidays” theme and the girls were encouraged to dress up as their favorite holiday. On Saturday morning, the girls had an early breakfast and headed to the morning devotional. Then they attended classes, had lunch, and attended more classes. Then they ate dinner and prepared for their performances. They performed two pieces – “Have Your Way” and “Say Yes”. On Sunday, the girls attended a worship service and production, more classes, and a faculty performance before hitting the road to return to Nashville.
An In Motion Dance Company parent and chaperone on the trip had this to say: “Dance Revolution was a wonderful experience. The staff incorporated a Christian view into everything they did. They taught the dancers to pray their dances, not perform their dances and to focus on excellence, not perfection. My daughter is already looking forward to attending the conference next year, and I certainly plan to go again, as well.”
We’re so proud of our dancers and thankful for those who supported them with fundraising, instructors who choreographed and rehearsed, and chaperones who traveled with them!
