Creating a Nice Bun Look Using a Sock
1 Sock with toe end cut off (preferably same color as hair color). Length of sock is not as important...but a good choice is a men's dress sock.
For shorter hair, use a shorter sock works best.
March Trained Dancer: Manners
Good Manners and Common Courtesy help make you an exceptional individual and will create more favorable relationships. Are there any manners you are lacking or that could use improving? I know after some research of my own, I realized I too could improve on somethings, especially with my own family. Do some research, and see what you can learn. It's more than a manner, it's You as a person.
February:Build a Word Cloud
Here are just a few of the Awesome Word Clouds that were created by our Awesome Dancers!!
What are words that describe you?! This month the goal is to sit down with a parent or grandparent..you can even call them if they life too far... ask them to tell you all the things that make you special. Write down as many adjectives/descriptive words as you can and then create a word-cloud poster.
Have Fun learning about yourself and then creating a fun poster that will be a beautiful reminder of all that you are. There is no right or wrong..on how to make a word cloud. "We are who we believe we are."
Here are some words to help you make your Awesome Word Cloud Poster!

This month our dancers have been encouraged to challenge their challenges. This means, pick something from class that is a bit challenging, and work on it at home. In order to see results, we must first make a plan: Decide how many days you will practice and for how long. Then follow that plan. If you do, you will notice a difference in your ability to perform that particular move. Go ahead, put it to the test and see if you can challenge your challenges this month.
Parent observation Week
So this week was a highlight for me. I did something new that I hadn't done before.
We invited in, as a "special guest" our parents, to watch their dancer perform and demonstrate the things they have learned since September. Each class was a bit different, but overall, the dancers had a positive experience. It was great to be able to tell the parents, this is what your child has been learning, here are some tips you can help them with at home, and this is why we are doing this move or skill.
Then...., some of our students were able to show their parents how to do certain moves. It was AWESOME to watch our dancers teach their parents. And even though there was some shyness from the parents to want to participate, I KNOW the it was a positive and neat thing to do with their child. Thank you Parents for getting out there on the floor and dancing with your child! They will NEVR forget it! ~ MEMORy MAdE ...Check (:
Another MEMORy MAdE was when we performed for the elderly at some local Assisted living homes This month and Last. We are so grateful to them for letting us come in and perform and Spread some Holiday/Christmas Cheer through song and Dance.

A Random Act of Kindness...
Thank you to all our classes who donated shoes to help a village in Africa to purchase a well. Together we donated 122 pairs of shoes. The shoes will be taken over to Africa and sold. The money received will then be used to purchase a well for clean water. Many children walk miles a day along dangerous roads, to get their water. This well will be a gift that never stops giving! It will also help save lives as many people get sick and later die from the unclean water. My heart goes out to these people. Thank you to those who are getting the shoes to Africa, Thank you to those who donated the shoes, Thank you to those who initiated the whole idea!! Thank you to God for all the wonderful blessings we enjoy simply by living in America! We truly are so blessed! I am so humbled by all the good people that are a part of my life! Thank you for your goodness. I pray for you and your families. Merry Christmas to all and May God BLESS EVeRyOnE !

November's Trained Dancer Results...
What a sweet and special treat it is to read all the wonderful things our dancer's had to say about the people they admire. For many, moms and dads were the number one pick! And I second that(: Some other wonderful people they admire are teachers, cousins, brothers, sisters, and friends.
Here are some Highlights:
These are some of the best things we could have someone say about us. Thank you dancers for sharing your special person with me. Because of their influence in your life, I know that someday others will say the same thing about you!! Hugs, Mrs. Amy(;
