My school had a spring performance today. We got lucky because it was sunny and had a lot of gorgeous light streaming through the windows. And as always, there's something about ballet, late afternoon light, live piano music, hardwood floors, and the enthusiasm of youth that is just magical.
I was captivated by the way the light was reflected against the girls' tulle skirts while they were waiting in line to perform. So lovely.
And I can't help it, I always get emotional watching ballet. Especially this one. I've seen these kids in the studio for more than a year now, witnessed how hard they work, often bringing their textbooks to finish their homework. I'm really happy for them.
