2014 started with weekly dance festival practices for our church’s youth program. Since my child was going to be age eligible that meant we were involved. The dance festival was going to have hundreds of kids between the ages of 12-18 in the Portland suburban area each dance being practiced around the area to culminate in this event right after the school year ended. This was a really fun experience for the youth that provided an opportunity for all abilities to perform. The dances were international themed and my daughter performed an Asian dance. There were also Irish, African, Russian, square dances, and more. This photo was at the finale of the first of four performances. The one we were lucky to attend. Lots of fun!
