Watching my daughter Christina dance is one of the great experiences I have as a dad. She is a ballerina who loves to perform and it’s obvious when you see her on stage.
This weekend her dance company performed the classic Christmas ballet the Nutcracker. She and all the other dancers were great. It was truly an incredible show especially in light of the fact that all but a few of the dancers are students still learning their art. The staff at Dance Arts Academy manages the show with a high level of professionalism giving these young dancers a taste of what it’s like to be a part of a professional ballet.
And of course, as beautiful as all the dancers were, I have to admit when Christina was on the stage dancing I really didn’t notice them. My eyes became glued to Christina. She is just beautiful and can dance and spin and fill the stage in a way that makes her dad proud.
