Dance performances are not just about perfect jumps and expertly choreographed moves. I find a lot of joy watching and photographing the special moments between the young kids that are just starting their journey in to the world of dance.
From getting dolled up with make up, and pretty hair adornments for the first time; to squirming in their seats waiting to perform, there are so many priceless moments. And then there are the wonderful parents and family members there to support them. They give hugs of support, and looks of approval and reassurance. All this wouldn't come together without their love. The teachers who patiently and consistently give the dancers, help them realize their potential and feel the joy of movement.
Runs June 20-24. Nightly performances begin at 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 24 Matinee at 2 p.m.
