Last night I took the night off from 34West shows to attend a different show. A show that included Legally Blonde, West Side Story, Toy Story, The Wiz and Phantom Of The Opera. It had dancing, tumbling, jazz, tap and ballet. Sounds like a big undertaking? It is to me, I normally work with a cast of 2 or 5 at the most, adults. This cast had about a hundred or more girls and boys from the ages of 3-17.
They performed like pros. It was really fun to watch. Their teacher was in the wings directing them and was no doubt very proud of them. She is set apart in my mind from many other instructors. She puts an emphasis on conquering fears, gaining self confidence, and just plain old having fun among other things. The older girls really are good role models and care about the younger ones. Size and shape really don't matter, no cookie cutter dancers.
Singing and dancing is something we should do from birth till death Miss Kim says. I would have to agree.
