Greater Than The Sum Of Its Parts

See No Evil curtain call

Three composers, three teacher-choreographers, a single amazing piano instructor-performer, scores of students and their parents, enrichment from talented guest artists, and tireless volunteers.  The culmination of an academic year that saw big transitions, much joy, a few tears, and amazing progress, played out on the stage yesterday.  I am still overwhelmed and impressed by the children and adults in whose company I now find myself.  I am also indebted to Julia, who made available some of the photos seen here.  And I am so very lucky.

    • She is wonderful. Someone told me yesterday she has a waiting list for new students; no surprise there. I have so enjoyed working with her and look forward to future collaborations. Thanks, Rebecca!~d
