Meggan's 1st Ballet


On Thursday night I took Meggan to her first "real" ballet. The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center (PAC) had a one night appearance of the Cinderella State Ballet Theatre of Russia. Meggan's ballet class offered the opportunity to go see this. Since the girls are in the process of practicing for their recital in May. Which we are so excited to see.

Anyway, from the moment we walked in and started watching I could not believe how mesmerized Meggan was by the "movie". Even though she knows it is live she still calls it a movie. She also did not quite get why they were not speaking the story. So, I explained they tell the story thru their dancing. By far her favorite things from the revue were the 1) Fairy that wore a beautiful Red tutu (brightest tutu in the whole show) GO FIGURE! and 2) The Trolls because they were funny in how they danced. The trolls were in place of the mice which are in the book.

Anyway it was a great experience and we can't wait to take Meggan and Jack to see Wicked in a couple weeks. Boy they sure are privileged kids to go to these kinds of things.
