The Dancer

My friend’s daughter is a dancer. She’s not just an average dancer….she’s an award winning dancer! Her name is Jerrica and she won first place at Nationals for her solo performance.

National Dance Champ


I love the energy and the grace of dance.

On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet.

    Amazing!!! Good for her! 😉

  2. Well done to Jerrica, fab photos too.

  3. That is awesome, Congratulations to Jerrica and keep up the great Job. By the way that second picture is lovely…

  4. That’s awesome! Does Jerrica train at a performing arts high school? My Jessica is training here in South Africa, but I’ve been looking at her options for the future and found a performing arts high school in the States that will take her as a transfer student. If our house sells, then we are relocating and will continue our ministry in the States.

    Wow, how cool! Jerrica is still in high school. Not sure where she is going after she graduates. Blessings to you and good luck with your house selling and moving. That’s a very big job!
