By mere chance, one of Ashley's friend's texted me a few weeks ago that the dance place where she danced at for 15 years was offering a new class specifically designed for special needs kids and teens.
The teacher is a local college student who is studying special education. She has done a great job working with the girls and their strengths teaching them fun moves to popular music. The girls have learned a routine to one whole song and half of another in just three weeks.

Victoria's mom and I contacted all of the local newspapers to try to get more participants. Their story was featured in the big Atlanta paper and a weekly community newspaper. Very exciting!
Brielle loves spending time with her best friend and the proximity and timing of the class couldn't be more perfect for us!
