Sandi Patty has five Dove Awards for best gospel artist. But there was something else she wanted - to dance.

"A little girl's dream is finally coming true," Patty told members of the Young Ballet Theatre in Anderson, Ind., before a show in her hometown's Paramount Theatre. "It's a thrill to get to do this with you guys."The five-time Grammy winner performed last Friday - both singing and dancing - with the troupe to raise money for restoration of its work-space.

The only stipulation she had before the performance was this: "No leotards for me."
