Never Stop Dancing


Our granddaughters have been studying dance each since they were about two years old. Now at ages 17 and 11 they are quite accomplished and it’s an incredible treat each time we get the opportunity to watch them perform. Today they and their fellow dancers are thrilled to be back on the stage in costumes with a live audience after last year’s virtual recital, thanks to a worldwide pandemic. We watched today’s performance is at Hoover High School in Canton with Dave & Amy. Its’ a Recital in Three Acts over the course of nine hours including two long intermissions. For the second two performances we secured seats at the front of the balcony and had a wonderfully unobstructed view of the stage. Each year we marvel at how they grow in grace and poise and delight in their skill. They each had multiple performances in several styles of dance. Riley was a part of a troupe that opened each act with a glittery performance that included a kick line. The two girls performed together in a beautiful ballet number. And Peyton did a solo tap number, to mention just a few. Besides watching them and their fellow students dance and enjoying the time we got to spend with Dave & Amy, we delighted in visiting with the girls for a few minutes after each session. Life is amazing.

For our first adventure together on the Emerald Isle, we walked the streets of Cobh, County Cork, explored St Colman’s Cathedral, and visited the Cobh Heritage Center.
