I am a ballet teacher and it is recital season. Things are a bit nuts due to the extra rehearsals and run-thrus preceding the performance. I keep having nightmares that I go out of town and miss the dress rehearsal or that I can’t find the auditorium or that none of my little ballerinas can find the right color tights. Whew. I’m a little worn out, but my sweet little dancers are just precious and I know they’ll do great. I keep reminding myself that regardless of whether they remember to point their toes or not, if at the end of the performance they tell me, “Miss Haley, I love to dance!” I will have succeeded. But, I’m a little antsy for the curtain to fall for my summer teaching break.
