H. W. Smith School

LWB company and trainees, along with fantastic guest performers Jay and Skip, performed "You Are Special" at H. W. Smith School on May 20th. This performance in particular was special, because it was our last time performing this ballet for the season--it had also been ten years since it debuted! We were able to perform for lots of enthusiastic grade levels all at once, which was exciting. Afterward, we were able to teach two gym classes. Both the kids and the company had a great time learning/teaching the different steps, as well as enjoying the kids' personalities and styles. We are so thankful God continues to open doors in our local schools! ~Hannah W.

Dr. King Elementary

This May the 19th, Company and trainees continued their trips to the Syracuse schools, at Dr. King Elementary. They had the pleasure of performing You Are Special for the children twice. Both groups of kids responded so well to the story's humor and message. With raucous laughter at the jokes and enthusiastic shouts of "I am super special" and "You are super special" when they were prompted, this group made for one fantastic audience. It was such a blessing to see them grasp and apply the purpose of the ballet, as well as to laugh and smile with each of them. ~Hannah R

Hughes Magnet School

Light of the World Ballet Company and Trainees had the privilege of performing at Hughes Magnet School! The performance of You Are Special just brought genuine smiles to the children's faces and showed them a glimpse of just how special they are. They also learning that their friends were special too and to tell five people that day that "they are special". Such an encouragement for the children and for us! ~Crisanna

Transformation Syracuse

May 14, 2016
The Company had the privilege to participate in a Transformation Syracuse event hosted at Faith Chapel. Aaron Nesbit was the guest speaker at the meeting. We performed 'Build Your Kingdom Here' to finish off the worship time. We joined with believers gathered from many different churches in the area to worship and honer the King of Kings! It was an honor to be a part of the event and to be able to encourage and bless those in attendance.

Ed Smith Elementary

  LWB company and trainees, plus guest artists Skip Mura and Jay Cole, performed You Are Special at Ed Smith Elementary on Friday, May 6th. The students were very engaged as we presented the short story ballet, proclaiming the message that each one of them really is unique and loved by their Creator. After the performance we had the opportunity to teach a second grade gym class. Miss Ashley led the class in speaking the fruit of the Spirit over themselves as they learned basic ballet steps and movements. We enjoyed getting to spend some time with these precious kids and hope to dance at the school again in the future! -Caitlyn

Believer's Chapel Youth

On Thursday May 5th, LWB Company and Trainees had the privilege of performing the story ballet, Living Hope, for the youth at Believers Chapel. The teens were captivated as they watched, and Crisanna shared her testimony with them of how her life has changed since giving Christ control. Afterwards, Miss Ashley shared a prophetic word with each of the teens. It was a wonderful night spent glorifying the Lord. I'm looking forward to returning in June! -Brookie

EFC Newport, RI Church-Sunday Performance

On Sunday, May 1st, LWB company and trainees had the fantastic opportunity to perform at the Jane Pickens Theater in Rhode Island. The theater was beautiful! We had so much fun exploring, taking pictures, and learning interesting facts about it, such as the fact that it used to be a church a long time ago. LWB performed Living Hope and Spirit Break Out for the audience, many of whom were military families. The performance was wonderful and was one of my personal favorite performances as a trainee with LWB. We were able to visit with the people afterward as well as visit the church that many of them call home, and we definitely felt God moving the whole day! It was a unique privilege to experience a bit of the culture of Rhode Island and the lovely people there all wrapped up into one. We're looking forward to our next visit! ~Hannah W.
