With much prayer, your survey choices, and many hours of pondering, we leaders have put together this list of the specialty dances you will be in. We feel that the dance you are in is a great fit for you! You will enjoy the specialty dances so much. And--I am so excited because every youth is in one of his/her TOP THREE CHOICES!!! That's awesome!!
If you would like to be in another specialty dance in addition to the one you are already in, please send an email to Sister Spencer email@example.com by Sunday, September 9th. In this email, you need to let me know five things:
1. Your name
2. What specialty dance you are already in
3. What specialty dance you would like to be added to.
4. Your age
5. What ward you are in.
I will do my best to add you into a second specialty dance, but please understand that it may not work because of where that dance is in the show, and whether or not it involves a difficult costume change. I'll do my best! :)
