Peter Pan Ballet

While I'm catching up on my poor little blog, I thought I might as well get REALLY current...as current as last night! A rarity for me - yes.

Last night we attended a wonderful performance of the Peter Pan Ballet. Our school is blessed with a wonderful group of staff who encourage participation in the fine arts. Not only is this encouraged, but they have made it a part of the school day. While it's only 30 minutes a week, one teacher (a former ballerina), teaches a ballet class to any students who want to participate. In the spring, the class then performs for their parents. This year's group was made up of 130 dancers, ranging from first through fourth grade. A few of the teaching staff also had parts in the play, including the principal who played Captain Hook.

Our Claire had the part of a fairy in the play. We were so proud of her and all of the other children. They practiced hard, and performed for the school yesterday afternoon, and then for the parents in the evening. The school choir also performed prior to the ballet (& Claire sang in that as well).

What's this? Claire was SO tired by the time we got home, this is as far as she made it to dump all of her things.
