My new life

It's been a while since I have posted.  First, my laptop died and I didn't have the money for the longest time to replace it.  I also moved back to my home town, Ellington, MO, in hopes of making an impact on the community with the arts and all my BIG ideas.  Ellington is a very small mining and milling community and according to the Missouri Unemployment, we have the highest unemployment in the state.  It's sad.  On top of that many of the original historical buildings are disappearing and the former charm that this town used to embue has settled into the piles of rubble and and disrepair created by the wake of parking lot needs and unwilling attitudes to restore our history.  With that said, I have strarted a performing arts school with an emphasis in dance.  The name of my school in TaDa! School for Performing Arts.  My hope is that someday we will have an accomplished school of dance and fitness and a community theatre.  Here are some pics of a few of my students.  They are expressing themselves through scarf dancing.
