Singing and Dancing Recital

Pilot and Jetta had a wonderful day of performing last weekend in The Art Space spring recital and I had a wonderful day watching them from the wings as I directed the show. I had so many other students that have become like my children up there that I did not picture for their privacy. But I will tell you that their faces bring tears to my eyes. Their beautiful spirits and courage up on that stage and off the stage is remarkable. I feel lucky each day to be able to work with them and learn from them as I teach.
These pictures were taken by my sister in law, Jessica Earle from Essence Photography
Pilot as the Steadfast Tin Soldier
He just breaks my heart.

After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.

What if imagination and the arts are not frosting at all, but the fountainhead of human experience?
