 The Rizer for September - Psalms 3:5-6

What is the all studio Rizer?  Every month, in addition to their regular dance instruction, all the dance students learn a new dance to a bible verse. (Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. Psalms 3:5-6)
