They were oh so nervous, naturally. Strangely though, I was not. I couldn't wait for them to hit the dance floor - to spread their wings and fly! We had drilled all the moves until they were coming out of our ears, played the music until it drove us to distraction, improvised in duets, triplets, large groups. Everything was as ready as it possibly could be - given they were improvising - and I just knew they could do it! I was so excited for them!
And so the moment came. They stepped onto the dance floor, the music started, the eyes lit up, the hips began to sway And they didn't just dance. Those girls took flight.
And as they soared,so did I.
