Double-vision? Nope! It’s the TFA Royal Sapphires warming up for their 2015 season with NEW MIRRORS! Thanks to a generous parent donation, the dance program will once again have the proper equipment needed to practice their skill. Coach Leslie Scott and the Sapphires are committed to excellence and excited to grow as a team. #whyIloveTFA
