Come with us as we return to South America this summer to volunteer at La Casa De Fe, a home for abandoned and special needs children in Shell, Ecuador.

Dance Class!

by erin

Kids everywhere love dance, and these kids are no different.

Fun music (Ecuadorian, Jessie Cook and Pirates of the Caribbean) and silly warm-up exercises make for a crazy time :0)

We taught the kids an Israeli circle dance called Baruch Adonai.

Part way through Dolly joined us. She loves music and it was fun to be able to include her in the dance class.

At the end of the dance we would all fall down and rest our feet

Julisa wanted to wear these all day long. They actually fit her! Its crazy how much the kids have grown up over the past year!

I think the thing that the kids enjoyed most about dance class was skipping across the floor together. It started out with two at a time…
