Skipping with pool noodles

Warrenton Virginia NEW Beginner camp off to a great start!! Skipping with pool noodles to ensure staying 6 feet apart AND keeping arms straight! It was shamrock day! ☘️ We colored shamrocks, did a shamrock maze, and decorated cardboard shamrocks with yarn! Everyone had their own yarn and no sharing. Safety first! And they learned their first reel! 🎶 comment below with an emoji to cheer on these awesome first time Irish dancers from ages 4-13!! 👏🏻🎉☘️☺️🙌🏻

What a WONDERFUL day at our picnic in the park! We were finally able to recognize our seniors and celebrate our dance year with casual dancing in a pavilion, a slide show, fun and socializing from a distance. A huge thank you to @stylishsketchesbyshelley for these amazing senior gifts. The girls and their moms absolutely love the gifts. Thank you, Shelley! Swipe to the end to see the passing on of the “tape ball.” We love our Southern dance family. ❤️

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Julia Wojtkun
Julia just graduated from Seton Home Study School and will be attending Christendom College in the Fall. She will be majoring in English which she hopes will help her in her dream to write and illustrate children’s books. Julia has been dancing since the age of three. She has had the opportunity to dance with many different studios across the country as she has had to move multiple times in her dance career. She has experience with ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, musical theatre, pointe & Irish. She has had the opportunity to participate in multiple productions of The Nutcracker and to use her dance skills in several home school dramatic productions.

When Julia’s family moved to Northern Virginia, she discovered Irish dance through the blessing of a Christmas gift certificate. Since she was new to Irish dance, she had the opportunity to dance with 2 of her younger siblings as beginners. Not only has she enjoyed being able to perform at the local fair and for our Church, she is especially thankful that her teachers have given her the time and additional instruction she needed as an older student instead of just focusing on the younger children in the class. In her brief time in the Lovettsville area, Julia has also been an assistant teacher for religious education classes at our church. Julia also worked as an assistant in an after school dance program in Ashburn.

Julia is a talented hard worker with a good eye for detail, craves corrections, as well as being very polite and considerate. She has amazing attention to detail and will drill a piece over and over until she gets it right. Julia is always quick to help other dancers and has such an infectious enthusiasm for dance. She is a great role model to the younger dancers.

Julia is hoping to be able to continue to use her skills from her dance career to participate in music and fine arts activities on her college campus. We are so proud of all that Julia has accomplished and overcome through the trials of our family moves. We are looking forward to seeing where all her creative endeavors will take her!

I will be bringing THE LIFFEY RIVERS IRISH DANCER MYSTERIES to the McGrath Feis on April 22nd. Hope to meet up with some of you then. You can go to www.liffeyrivers.com to have a look at the books. See you soon!
For those going to Tall Oaks Assisted Living tomorrow: The address listed on Sign Up Genius is different from Tall Oaks website. Sign Up Genius has the address as 12022 N Shore Dr Reston but I found the number address to be 12052. 12022 is the address for Tall Oaks Shopping Center.
We just happened to be going through the drive-thru at CFA tonight. Such a treat to see such talented dancers while we waited!
