Young Karen thrives as she learns dance. This is what she has been looking for in life! I think we all look for that special thing that makes us our best selves. I do, and I bet you do, too. What is your special thing? Can Whispers of Hope help you with it?

Scene 4: Second Lesson and Rapid Progress

In a week, Karen dressed in her dance togs so she would not have to waste time changing at the studio. Then she and Mama drove to Gilberto’s for her second lesson. While Mama and Ms. DeVine chatted, she warmed up and practiced her shuffle step. Tap! Tap!

Gilberto came out of his office wearing a big smile. “This is great. You’re all warmed up and ready to dance.”

She grinned and did the shuffle. Right foot. Left foot. Right foot. Left foot. Tap! Ta-ta-ta-tap!

His eyebrows went up. “You’ve been practicing, haven’t you, sweetheart?”

“Every spare minute! I love dancing!”

He smiled at Mama. “Mrs. Hershstein, you were right. This little girl is one hard worker.”

Mama beamed as Gilberto led Karen back to the studio for her second lesson.
