Barnhill Studios of Paris hosted its annual “Girl’s Just Wanna Have Fun Camp” on June 5th - 7th. The “Girls Only” camp was directed by Paula Barnhill and studio instructors Cassey Trusty, Taylor Mertin, Courtney McKee, Catherine Terry, and Darlene Hudson. Dance instructor, Taylor Mertin, taught the girls dance routines to “I Feel Better When I’m Dancing” and “Bahama Roller Coaster Ride” as they enjoyed learning several new dance moves to share with their families and friends. Baton Twirling instructor, Cassey Trusty, had lots of fun teaching the girls a twirl-dance routine to “Stand Out” and leading several fun activity songs during the camp. All the girls enjoyed learning cheers from Courtney McKee, Cheer and Tumbling instructor, and used their pom poms as they danced to “When You’re a Princess”. Darlene Hudson focused on exercise and fun movement songs such as “The Sit Down, Stand Up Song”, “The Alligator Stomp” and “Everybody Jump”. They also had the opportunity to punch, kick, and kia with Martial Arts instructor Paula Barnhill. The girls had lots of fun participating in games such as “Jump Jim Joe” and “The Captain Is Coming”. The camp ended with a swim party, as the girls enjoyed splashing and playing with old friends, and the new friends they made during the camp.
