Gentle Hands Presents:
"Impossible! The Story of Cinderella"

This past weekend, the ballet students at Gentle Hands performed their first installment of Cinderella. Normally, I like to do a typical recital-type performance where the different classes perform dances that run together with a theme, but they do not necessarily tell a story. 

However, about a month ago, I found out we needed to put together a performance for some visitors who were coming. I had already started two classes with Cinderella themed songs, thinking maybe we would do a princess or fairy-tale themed performance. And because we can't some to do anything on a small scale, we decided to tell the full story of Cinderella... complete with costumes, props, a script, and a whole lot of dancers. 

It has been a lot of hard work, but I am so proud of my girls and their effort. Our first performance was Sunday for the staff, children, and a few friends. One of our precious girls is being adopted, and her parents were able to watch her perform. It was a special day.
