In February of this year, five Link dancers placed 3rd in the Youth American Grand Prix (YAGP) Semi-Finals at Indiana University performing a piece entitled, “Yes, Jesus Loves Even Me!” They have been invited to the YAGP Nationals in New York City to perform this piece in April. One soloist also placed in the top 12 for her classical variation performance at the same YAGP event. YAGP is the largest student competition worldwide offering $250,000 in scholarships for higher dance education.
Six Link students have been selected to attend the prestigious Houston Ballet’s Summer Intensive 2014. Also in August, several Link students will be traveling to Virginia for the Cecchetti International Ballet Summer Dance Seminar.
In addition to all of this, The Link will be offering Summer Master Classes with world renowned guest artists including Lauren Anderson, former Prima Ballerina of the Houston Ballet, Sol Nazario, former Prima Ballerina of the National Ballet of Puerto Rico and many others…
As you can see, these dedicated dancers’ summer is full of amazing opportunities!
We have planned a wonderful Silent Auction so, please join us for a wonderful evening with a strolling dinner, The Link Ballet dancers performing and ending with a delicious dessert and coffee cash bar. It promises to be one of the best events of the year and will help support The Link dancers as they prepare and participate in their summer dance studies!

Each year, The Link has the wonderful privilege of ministering at the Oakmont Senior Citizens Center in Sterling Heights, MI. Led by Sarita Mehta Pauline, our worship instructor, students from Beg A thru our Company level shared their worship dances and a classical variation.
It was wonderful to see the room filled with many residents, parents, siblings and friends. Hearts overflowed with the love of God as they recited memorized bible verses and dance unto the Lord.
Following the program, students passed out handmade cards, talk and shared big hugs with the residents. Moms prayed with and for each other.
Many testimonies, tears of thankfulness and gratitude were given to Lower School Director Susan Howard and Ms. Sarita. Some have come every year and the dances always touch them more and more. We are so blessed to be used as a vessel by God to bring his message of love to others through the dance.
And that is what it is all about at The Link; sowing the Word of God through dance in the lives of these very gifted students. They are our legacy! It’s not about us, but it’s about WHO, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, impacting lives through the arts, one dance and dancer at a time! Next Sunday, March 16th, the students minister at Cherrywood Nursing Home in Troy, MI. Pray for us!
