I've posted all of these pictures on instagram over the past month so I apologize for repeat photos. I just felt like I wanted to get all these pictures of our beautiful dancer in one place and and let her know how much I enjoy watching her strengthen and share this talent of hers. She really has a great feel for rhythm and space and her movements are so graceful. She is a bit shy. She won't dance on demand and often stops mid leap when she notices someone watching her. But in class, alongside other dancers, she's not afraid to give her body permission to move.
I've loved watching her through the glass door at dance these past several months. And I was so proud to watch her perform on stage at the historic Kingsbury Hall on Saturday. Virginia Tanner has been a wonderful place for my girls over the years. I love the openness of their teaching, the ability the dancers have to express themselves how they want. I love the live pianist who plays impromptu as the dancers lead in the direction they want the rehearsal to go. It's such a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere and Louisa thrives in it. I'm looking forward to more hours spent in the hallway at the Eccles Art Center and more evenings spent watching my girls perform on stage.
