Westfalia Orphanage dance performance

2010 September 3

The kids from Westfalia Orphanage had their dance performance after their 3 month block lessons. They had lessons every week and were continually practicing in their spare time for the performance. We caught the bus from Cieneguilla, a small district in the hills on the outskirts of Lima. After an almost 2 hour bus ride we connected to the new Metropolitano Bus system and caught the bus to Chorillos, a beach suburb of Lima.

After a short walk we were at Angels D1 dance School. We met our two dance teachers and they gave us a tour of the dance school. After looking around the girls began some practice. They were extremely nervous being at one of Lima`s best dance schools with professionals and a big audience yet extremely excited at the same time.

After watching a performance from another group it was the girls` turn.

The performance was amazing, especially considering they only had 12 official classes to learn the routine. I was really proud of them. They were all so excited, it was really amazing to see them so happy. We watched a little bit of the next performance but had to leave for the long journey home.  After finally being able to drag them out of the school we had some food at a local restaurant before the almost 3 hour bus rides home.

On the bus the girls couldn`t stop talking about the performance. It was an amazing day. A big thanks to Paola, the teachers and staff at Angels D1 dance School in Lima for their help. And a special thank you to those who have donated money to make these lessons possible. Without donations it would be impossible to have the dance classes or any other outings or activities for the kids. Thanks! And if you have a spare $10 in your wallet, please help us help these kids by clicking here.
