Teischan, in #2 t0 #4 above, took part as a Bon-Bon (as she also did last year) in both the Saturday and Sunday performances at Oyster River High School. Though we, of course, shuttled her their and back we did not attend either of those two performances. We go to one of the Wolfeboro performances because we consider that the ‘Home Game‘. So I only got to take pictures after the show. The very striking lady above is ‘Karen’, Teischan’s ballet teacher. She is also the one that you see, seated on the floor, in the ‘thumbnail’ image shown next to the links. I gather she used to be a talented and famous ballerina. I do not know her very well. But she kindly allowed me to take this picture. The two other girls above WANTED their picture taken and I was happy to oblige. They are so pumped after the show. Great stuff.
Well yesterday while Teischan was performing in Durham I bought tickets for all of us to go the ‘Nutcracker’ in Boston by the Boston Ballet. I will do a separate post on that. This is the funny thing about being in a show such as the ‘Nutcracker’ with such a large cast and umpteen acts. Teischan has never got to see the entire stage play. She just gets to see the act before the ‘Bon-Bons’ and the start of the one that follows. So she has only seen the entire show on DVD. Now she will get to see it, on a rather grand scale, on the stage.
