Recently, we as a school were asked to create a piece to “Disney and Other Animated Favorites,” a local theater production spotlighting excerpts from popular animated movies for kids.
We had Becca, our assistant teacher and director of our performance group lead and direct the routine and we had three of our most advanced dancers who are also sisters, dance.
Our dancers dance to a routine for “Touch the Sky,” from the movie “Brave.”
In addition to dancing and directing the project, the girls also designed and created the costume which was Becca’s idea inspired by the “Wisps” in Brave. The costumes turned out great and really bring out the characters.
Though it took a little while learning rhythms not exactly native to our style, we adapted and overcame, and it is turning out to be a great project for all involved. We can’t wait until show time Friday and Saturday night to see how it is received. During rehearsals, the girls received grand applause.
Special thanks to Becca for directing and assisting with choreography, and Josie (advanced dancer) who also helped with choreography, and to her sisters who help make this performance special.
Seeing three sisters who are great dancers in their own right, spend so much time working on this routine and for Becca to take the time to direct and coach the girls is very inspiring. These girls make our school as good as it is now and in the future because of their willingness to learn and work hard to make us proud.
