Of Tights and Tutus

A culmination of a year's worth of ballet and tap classes. A chance to dance on the stage at the 1894 Grand Opera House in Galveston, Texas. A dress rehearsal and a performance within 24 hours. Trips to and from Galveston: 4. Little girls star-struck by the talent of the older girls. Make-up, tights, sequins, spandex, tutus, tap shoes, flowers, applause, hugs, hundreds of excited girls and proud families. One girl in particular tap danced her heart out to "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and one family in particular beamed with pride.* Ice cream treats afterwards at an old-fashioned soda shop. Memories.

*Will upload video of her performance soon.
