Dance Like David Praise Dance Showcase 2014 \\ Stamford, CT

August 11, 2014  •  4 Comments

I was really looking forward to this year's Dance Like David Inspirational Dance Showcase. Cynthia contacted me a couple months ago and asked me to photograph and videograph the show. The program was full of talent! I felt like I was in church. It was quite amazing. I know that the children at the Center of Hope in Haiti and the Community School of Molas will benefit from this fundraiser.

Here's a group photo of all of the performers.

A few minutes before it ended, we heard a beautiful male voice. I had no idea that Chrisner would be singing. I hadn't seen this guy since 10th grade! His voice has gotten even better, and I quickly ran inside so I could listen and photograph him and the rest of the team.

I don't know much about dancing, but getting such a large group of girls to learn multiple routines must be difficult! Great job to their leader, Cynthia Charles.
