Tri-Stake Dance Festival

This past weekend, our stake participated in a Tri-Stake Dance Festival. The events were held at a local football stadium. Each stake performed a total of 4 dances.

In our stake, they danced in groups of Beehive/Deacon, Mia Maid/Teachers, Laurels/Priests, and the 4th dance they were all combined.

Waiting for the dance to start...

The Beehives and Deacons did a really fun stick dance.....


...and the Laurels and Priests did a waltz.

Riley is now a Mia Maid and they did a swing dance to the song "Route 66". I was glad that Riley participated. She complained a little bit about doing it (I think that is what all kids do), but I know that she was very glad that she did it in the end. I feel like the church leaders go through so much effort to come up with great activities for the kids, and sometimes they kids don't even want to try. Her complaints were falling on deaf ears. She realized that her complaining was going to get her NO WHERE, so she figured she might as well suck it up and enjoy it.





Come on baby, let's do the twist....



The Finale was performed by all the kids in the stakes to the music "The Circle of Life" from the Lion King movie. It was a lot of fun to watch. They did a fantastic job.

That looks like so much fun! Funny how when you get old things you would have complained about when you were younger are all of the sudden fun!!
