Friday Photo Flashback ~ Destiny Dance

Friday Photo Flashback

I'm linking up with Alicia of More Than Words for another Friday Photo Flashback.

I always had fond memories of dance class as a kid. So just for the fun of it, I signed up for an adult dance class at Destiny Dance. It was from 2005-2006 and Sheryl Cooper was our teacher.

Sheryl is the wife of Alice Cooper, the rock star. You remember the song "School's Out", don't you? BTW, they are both Christians. Their Solid Rock Foundation has done much for the youth in the Phoenix area. They will be opening up The Rock Teen Center in the near future. It will be a place for teens to go for mentoring, music and dance lessons, sports and much more.

Sheryl kept encouraging our dance class to participate in the year end recital. I really had no interest since I only took the class for fun and exercise. Go on a stage and perform; no way! But Sheryl can be quite persuasive, so most of our adult class ended up performing in the recital after all.

We performed a beautiful number to the song Resurrection. I'd missed the dress rehearsals since I was in New York City the week prior to the recital. But I still joined in and ...had a ball.
Here's Sheryl Cooper, our teacher. She's a lovely person and a great dancer and teacher.

  1. How fun. I'm glad you got to participate in this. I'm sorry you won't be at the AZ tea. I was looking forward to seeing you again.

  2. Love the outfits!
    I remember "School's Out" how wonderful that they now preform the Lord!

    I danced for 20 years and own a dance studio for 13 years. I loved preforming on the stage. It's lot of fun...isn't it?

    love and hugs~Tammy

  3. You know I'm all about the beauty of dance - especially for our King!

  4. What a beautiful group of ladies! And what FUN!! Love that you went ahead and took the class and did the performance. Good for you!

    I'm also so glad to see the work Alice Cooper and his wife are doing through their foundation.

    Thanks for sharing this Debbie... one more side of you, and a fun one at that! Doesn't surprise me a bit...



  5. How wonderful, Deb! I never knew this about you...the outfits were wonderful! The Coopers are an amazing couple and do a lot for charities around here...thank you for sharing!

  6. Wow! Really, married to Alice Cooper? How awesome is that. And they are Christians? Love it!!!

    I'm sure you had alot of fun times with these ladies! Very cool outfits!

  7. That is great to know that Alice and his wife are Christians! And girl, you rocked that outfit. Not many women could pull that off -- ESPECIALLY me. Ha.

    You looked lovely as always!

  8. What a fabulous alter-ego!! And purple so becomes you, too.

    Blessings & amazing grace today, and always,


  9. How fun that all must have been. You look wonderful in your costume too. I have to admire you. In a million years I could have never done such a thing and how sad really. I think my weight has kept me from more than I think. Have a wonderful week-end Deb. Hugs, Debbie

  10. What a beautiful memory! Sounds like a fun time. You are a fun and spunky friend. I would love to see you again.

    Hugs for your day,

  11. I always wanted to be a ballerina. When that didn't happen I plunked my 5 year old daugher into ballet class...she much preferred goofing around onstage with her 5 year old best friend (pink tutus and all)...dreaming still I joined an aerobic ballet class hoping to wear my very old ballet slippers..first thing teacher said was "no ballet shoes!", my friends had a good laugh.

    Am thrilled about the Coopers....yet ANOTHER avenue of people out there doing something for God in their own unique way!
    Thanks once again Debbie for your real life post!

  12. Fun pictures! That's great that you participated in dancing later in life! Awesome! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great Friday!

  13. Wow, that looks like so much fun Debbie! And thanks for sharing about the Coopers. I've now been onto Wikipedia and read up on Alice Cooper. I love this quote from him, "Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that's a tough call. That's real rebellion!" God certainly does use broken vessels! I love it!

  14. Oh! I love your vibrant costumes! You all look great and I am sure that it was an amazing performance.

    I would have to have months and months and months of practice to dance...and maybe only in the privacy of my home :o)

    Blessings & Aloha!

  15. You all look fabulous!! LOVE the costumes!!!

  16. How fun! It's great to go back and do something you used to do!

  17. Fantastic! It would have been great to be at the performance ;)

  18. What fun! I didn't realize that about the Coopers. She is beautiful. And so are you in your lovely dancing dress. :-)


  19. I'm sure you ladies were beautiful dancers! That's wonderful! I always wanted to dance... but....my sister and I did not receive the "graceful" gene! LOL...


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
