MARBLE FALLS — Racheal Frazier laughed when asked if she realized what kind of skill level of dancers she might draw to her free workshop — some with plenty of rhythm and others … not so much.

“It’s OK,” she said with smile. “You don’t have to have any experience.”

Frazier, the owner/director of the Yet Praise Dance Co. in Kingsland, is conducting a free dance workshop 10 a.m.-2 p.m. June 13 at Lakeside Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista.

The workshop will teach some basic moves all the way to Christian hip-hop.

“It’s basic dance at the very beginning level,” she said.

Then, that evening, students will give a recital at 7 p.m. The girls will be asked to wear pink T-shirts, while the boys will wear black. No writing should be on the T-shirts. They all will wear blue jeans.

She called the creation of her dance company a miracle.

A year ago, she conducted a dance fundraiser to help her children’s school. During that time, she said she felt God leading her in creating a dance company.

So she prayed about it. Within a week, she said she was given the name of the company and other elements that needed to be incorporated.

The name comes from Psalms 42:11-12: “No matter what, I will yet praise Him.”

Frazier said since starting the company, she has had confirmation that this is what she is supposed to do.

So that’s why she doesn’t worry if she encounters a student who might not have rhythm.

“Anybody’s welcome,” she said.
