The curtains opened, and attendees of Steak N' Burger turned to face the Youth dancing gracefully on the stage. Everyone was in awe of the young ladies, and how incredibly talented they were. Many would be surprised to know that their performance at Steak N' Burger was the Dancing Angels first ever official performance!
The Dancing Angels are an all-inclusive dance team focusing on a variety of genres including ballet, modern dance, hip hop and jazz/lyrical. The team of fifteen young women practice at least three times a week, with practices increasing depending on how close to competition time they are. When these Angels know they have a performance, they practice every day to ensure they are precise with their movements, and can give their all to the audience.
"This dance team stretches me like never before. I never knew dance in this way before. That's the reason why I keep coming back, it challenges me to be better each time." -Tanya D, Dancing Angels member
My hope is that our young ladies take what they learn from dance and apply it to their lives. This dance team gives our young ladies another opportunity to grow into amazing young women. Being able to express themselves through their talent can ultimately birth a gift that they didn't even know they had. My hope is that they will believe in it so much that it becomes more to them than just dance and they will be able to travel all over the region putting smiles on faces." -Eric Battle, York County Unit Director
The Dancing Angels are hard at work, as they already have more performances on the calendar! They next take the stage at our annual Boys & Girls Clubs talent show in June 2018 (more info on that event soon!).
