Hosanna Dance 

Fall Edition 2011 TBA Pierre/Ft. Pierre Artistic Director, Sunny Holloway Vol 1

“Here we are, here we are, standing in Your Presence, Lord, send the fullness of Your Spirit. Let Your Glory come down.”  These are words from the wonderful song, Shekinah, that nine dancers danced to September 11 for the opening of the Kids Alive program at New Life Assembly.  We continued to do that dance piece all of September as the opening for the weekly Sunday morning productions. 
Shekinah proves to be as moving for the dancers and viewers as Your Great Name and we have already been asked to repeat these dances on 11/11/11 for an all day worship in the Captiol Rotunda and for midnight mass at St. John’s Catholic Church on Christmas eve.

Registrations for Hosanna Dance are still low for this time of year.  Deadline for late registrations is December 1st.  This is to allow costume orders to be placed in December for the April 20th show date.

The transient nature of attendance at the YMCA has affected our classes somewhat.  We are trying  to maintain the structure, discipline and commitment needed for a private studio ballet program.
The Y has been very gracious to rent us the multi purpose room and the aerobics room when it is available.  We have been able to fit our schedule in there fairly painlessly.

Five students, Ms. Sunny, and several adults plan on traveling to Yankton on Friday, October 28th to participate in an all day workshop Saturday with Ballet Magnificat and to see their Sunday performance of Deliver Us and The Arrival.  Emily Plumage, Abbey Nold, Mekell Rockwell, Sarah Easter, Josh Easter and Ms. Sunny will be taking classes.  Chuck and Marci Easter, Noreen Plumage, Lynde Rockwell and DeAnn Hilmoe plan to see the performance, also.

(Normally 1-2 years is spent studying per grade. More as you progress through the grades.)
