Day #3 ... our work starts (posted a day late...sorry)

Our real work started today. The team went to the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) to conduct master classes in dance, drama and music. NOCCA is a beautiful facility and it was wonderful to see a public school dedicated to the performing arts with a state of the art facility filled with aspiring artists!

Here is the NOLA team with NOCCA's Director of Campus Life, Brian Hammel.

Kris works with a jazz bass player.  This student rocked!

Stephanie & LeBaron lead the NOCCA dance students in a Paul Taylor combination.

NOCCA drama students are led in an acting exercise by Christina.

The team continued the day with the start of our arts immersion program at the Dryades YMCA. We had a lively and energetic group of children who actively participated in the games and activities. We ended the day with "Rocketship!", an inspirational group call and response blastoff, led by "Dro." What an exhilarating day!

This team really worked hard and I know that the rest of the week will be a rejuvenation of the spirit for all of us. Can't say it enough... I'm so proud of this team. x/o, Sabrina
