Cory finished her 6th performance yesterday afternoon. DH, DDs and aunt and uncle came to see her. She did wonderfully - although one little angel tripped (the only time during the whole run of the show) but she bounced up quickly and continued on. Cory was upset about it, though. She felt so sorry for her friend, but was competely devastated that the one performance her parents came to was 'ruined'!!
Although I enjoyed sitting in the audience to see the entire show, I think my favorite memory was watching from backstage one evening. As a chaperone, I had to escort the angels to the stage when they got their curtain call, and then wait for them to finish before escorting them back to the dressing rooms. Standing off-stage and observing what goes on behind-the-scenes in a professional ballet company was fascinating - but the moment the orchestra begins playing and the curtain goes up while your DD is standing onstage in front of a thousand people is a special moment. I'll admit, I had a tear or two - not only for Cory but for all the little girls out there, dreaming of being 'real' ballerinas one day.
After her matinee, we met her at the stage door with a bouquet of pink roses and then took her to dinner. Her Aunt Jodie and Uncle Tim presented her with a little nutcracker of her very own (which she hugged tightly!) and is now on display in the living room.
Cory's already planning for next year - hoping she'll get the part of one of the white mice, but she's quite content with being an angel again.
