Dance class begins

One of the favorite pass times of the kids at the orphanage is to break dance... In fact it is something that is incredibly popular with all the kids in the area... There is a pastor of a church in town that not only has a dance group, but arranges dance contests all over the region. You may remember the dance party we had a few months ago. It is a great way for the kids to interact with others from outside the orphanage as well as giving them a sense of accomplishment .... not to mention that THEY ARE GOOD !.. With a very minimal investment, we have been able to set up a new dance studio at the orphanage. complete with a sound system that we will share with pastor Vera. The pastor from town is now coming out to the orphanage 2 days a week. He is teaching them all the "new moves" but even better, he is taking time to build a relationship with the kids, and becomes one more positive influence on their lives.. Down to their level ...teaching a new spin Even the assistant director is learning a few new moves

I notice that Sergey is not out on the floor.... oh ya...Someone has to take the photo's ..
joking aside... This is such a blessing to these kids, and will build their self esteem, give them a place in the community, and most of all give them the "ear" of one more person that love them and care for them, and be their to advocate on their behalf.
Thank you to all those who have helped get this project up and running, and for the on going support to keep it running.
