Going pro

Remember the 13-year-old so eager to go on that she sang and danced along while she was waiting in the wings? The next time I saw her, she had been doing two shows a day for a week. Before she went on, she sighed, smiled a little, and said,
"Another show."

Between numbers, she and the other girl didn't dance, or even stand -- they sat, cross-legged.Their dancing was as good as ever, though.

--and how I always remember how to spell "copyright" (which I always think should be "copywrite") is from this line in a hilarious MAD spoof of a Micky Mouse cartoon:

"Walt Disney © copied right."

This all reminds me of the Noel Streatfield Shoes books. So sweet! And I love the costumes.

Ha! 2 shows a day for a week takes its toll on everyone, even 13 year olds!
