artist dance academy: senior dance company

20130514_allen_artisticdance-194i I've been itching for weeks to post these photos! And now that the recital is done and the surprise has surprised--here are some lovely pictures for y'all wonderful people! Back in May, I photographed Artistic Dance Academy's senior company as a surprise gift for their beloved instructors, Mrs. Patricia and Mrs. Crystal! These girls are on their way to make their marks in this huge world! All of them have great things ahead of them and hearts full of love & grace! I was in tears with them at their last recital last weekend! I've watched all these girls dance their hearts out across that stage for 7 years (both recital & Dance for Christ) now and they have grown into strong, beautiful dancers and even stronger young women. Good luck all of you as you take over this world with your faith and grace!
