Here are a few glimpses of all the happiness and beautiful art happening behind the scenes at Agape Dance .  I am alway inspired when I come to the studio and remember what my to-do list supports.  Beautiful art, happy wholesome friendships that will last a lifetime, radiant children learning to dance, bubbling with joy as they leave the classroom, amazing dancers maturing in their technique from their hours of sacrifice and focus towards a challenging goal.  Okay to-do list.....bring it on!!!
