Day 93 / 103 - Once Upon a Time
I've posted before about the phenomenal dance school that we've located here in Beckley (here and here). Well, just when I thought it couldn't get any better, our director put together his annual recital that combines our family's love of literature with our daughter's love of dance. When a dance recital begins with a fully clad Gandalf/Dumbledore character rising from center stage, you know you're in for a spectacular show. The theme is Once Upon a Time, and in the first 15 minutes you encounter wizards and witches, Peter Pan and Indians, Dorothy and the Munchkins, Alice, Mother Goose, Snow White, and other fairy tale characters brought to life with the music of Tchaikovsky, Judy Garland, and more! As I sat through the rehearsal for the opening, I felt as though I was witnessing a program performed by a professional dance company. It is worth far more than its meager price of admission.
