Brenda with her Interpretive Dance Team

Here is a performance the girls die for an assembly at Granard Junior High. Brenda is on the bottom right in the picture and then on the front row far right in the video (grey t-shirt). Sorry, the video is a little dark and wiggly. I don't know what's wrong with that camera person!!! The song they are dancing to is True Beauty by Mandisa (from American Idol). Angie Wilkerson does a great job teaching them.

Here are the lyrics... It's a great message for teenage girls...

True Beauty

Do You think that a California girl is supposed to have curls and wear a jean size 3?

All the curves in all the right places, spray tanned faces like on TV?

And we read in the gospel of Vogue that we're all supposed to dress and move and be

Visions of perfection

Such a misconception

'Cause the real connection is deeper than the eye can see


What's inside of you

What's inside of me

The hands that made the moon and the stars

The mountains and the seas

Made you wonderful, beautiful, marvelously

Let the whole world see your

True beauty

Don't know much about Dolce and Gabbana

Seems like a lot of drama to me

And you can keep all your red high heels

And open-toed shoes - I'm good in my bare feet

Lets get down to the nitty gritty

Enough sex and the city

What about purity?

Skin is just the surface

The passion and the purpose that's burning down inside us

Is really what we need to see


Doesn't come in a bottle, doesn't come in a box

You can't spray it on, you can't wash it off

You can't nip and tuck, you can't sew it up

So don't waste your time

It's the love in your heart, the peace in your soul

The hope in your smile lets the whole world know

This little light - you gotta let it shine
