Dance Recital 2010

Hadassah: A Story of Esther in pictures as told by Sarah

This is the way to start any production - with prayer
Hadassah: A Story of Esther, April 25, 2010, @ Riggs High School Theatre, Pierre
~  ~  ~
The village is happy
The King & Queen are happy,

but then...
the queen won't come when the King summons
... the search for a new queen begins
(I am resisting)
Esther is taken
Esther's preparation

I'm not actually trying to punch her,... I must be teaching her some self defense (could be useful information in the Persian court) but my lessons must bore her.

the King chooses ...

and we have Queen Esther

(there's bad old Haman - my dad)

 oh no!
somthing's afoot

The Prayer - Mordecai (oh yah, my brother) & Esther

for such a time as this...

 surounded by angels

Esther & her guardian angel (me)
Esther is on her way to the king, guardian angel and all.
what... you want us to come to a banquet ?
Haman looks a little worried...
bye, bye Haman

celebration time!
Josh & I are off the ground (back two)!

Josh likes to give an impressive curtain call :-)

Student Examinations

If you or your student are interested in getting started with Cecchetti student examinations let us know.

Ballet III and up are eligible to start working on Grade 1. Examinations take a lot of preparation, study, and commitment.
(Normally 1-2 years is spent studying per grade. More as you progress through the grades.)

Our studio is affiliated with the Cecchetti Council of America. All teachers hold certificates in the Cecchetti Method.
