Oh, the golden days of dancing. How I miss them so. For ten years, my mother owned and directed a studio where I spent countless hours of my life. My mom loved to tap dance most of all, and I still remember my choreography to Shirley Temple's I Love to Walk in the Rain.
Recital season is now in full force, and it feels like it was yesterday that I was a little girl exploring the Rome City Auditorium. I bonded with each person involved in the theatre; from the assistant stage manager to the man who guided the spotlight. I learned how to hang and tie backdrops, close the curtains, and sneak out of my mother's sight and into the furthest balcony there was. It was a remarkable adventure.
The feeling of being on stage never leaves you. For the Kinderdance family, we cherish the special moments we create during our Parent's Days because we were once baby ballerinas ourselves.
****Please email your child's teacher to inquire about your center's Parent's Day. We look forward to seeing you there.
