~Choir Concert and Historical Dancing~

Our Choir's Spring concert was held this month and it went very well! The theme was songs, hymns and spiritual songs. It was lots of fun! :-)

Here's a picture of me in my choir "uniform". I made the skirt a little earlier this year and in doing so put in my first zipper (a side zipper)! Hooray! I was pleased with the way it turned out. :-)

On Thursday we went to a two hour Historic dance session/lesson.
It was soooooo much fun! :-)

We learned the Virginia Reel, Lancers Quadrilles,
Yankee Doodle, a dance with the waltz step and we were also shown how to do the box step! (A lot of the dances are taken from the Civil War period.)
We had a wonderful time and I greatly look forward to the next practice! :-)

My younger brothers decided to observe this time. They enjoyed watching!

We (our family) went over some of the dances we learned, here at home, and we found some music samples of civil war period music on the internet that made a nice accompaniment! Here's the link.

In Christ,

"Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His loving kindness is everlasting. "

Psalm 118:1
