Dance Recital!

I attended a pretty exciting dance recital this past Sunday, held by the Paisley Academy School of Performing Arts.

Commander Meek-Meek, my coworker, had an extra ticket. So I decided to go (after she texted and reminded me, lol).

I enjoyed every minute of it.

There was a group called the The Georgia Spirituality Singers (I think that's their name).

Man, they could sing some negro spirituals. Felt like I was transported back in time when the slaves picked cotton down by the riverside. I need for them to do a whole concert. I would surely attend!

And then there were the actual dances. I think each class did 2 or 3 dances. Which meant we were there a good 3 hours. But it was well worth it to see the 3 and 4 year old "Leap and Learn" dancers, as well as the more advanced dancers.  I didn't get great pictures.
I really liked the one above. They danced to Wade in the Water, a dance routine commonly done by the Alvin Ailey dance company.

Thanks for the free ticket, Commander! Call me anytime! I'll be there with a strong handclap! :)

Someday I will attend an Alvin Ailey dance show. I surely will.

Until then, I will enjoy them on Youtube!
