Christmas Break

​During the holiday break, the girls had a one hour Mentoring/Rap Session with Host, Pierrea Currence from @proDOTions.  After the session, Ms. Pierrea, also a Dance Professional, taught them a cute routine.  It was amazing to watch how she fast they learned the dance to the Holiday tune, All I Want from Christmas is You. Our Bright Stars did an awesome job performing on stage for our male scholars.  Enjoy!
