The 2009 Winter Dance Recital for Designed 2 Dance was a huge success 43 girls put on an hour long recital that entertained a gym full. Each group had to learn 4 songs, their group song two opening songs and a closing; they each preformed their songs perfectly. The children all were dressed up as animals to fit the animal planet theme. There were bears, monkeys, octopuses, lions, cheetahs, tigers, and fireflies. The next Designed 2 Dance classes begin January 11th with the spring recital being held April 11th, if you would like your child to join please call Brittny @ 208-816-1855.
