but I play one every Tuesday night at Madison Studio. Thus the studio director asked me to play the Queen in their spring ballet, “Swan Lake Selections,” which took place last weekend. My parents were in town, so they got to see me perform. I’d like to say that was a happy coincidence, but they actually rearranged their plans (their usual visit happens on my birthday) so that they could could say they were still attending their daughter’s ballet recitals now that their daughter is 37 years old!
Conveniently, last weekend was also Daniel’s birthday, so they got to celebrate with him, too. Yay! Daniel brought his trusty Handycam to the show and recorded my star turn. I am posting clips from Scene 1 and Scene 3 here. In Scene 1, I appear briefly. In Scene 3, I am onstage the whole time, but for much of the scene I’m watching the others dance. Watch to see what happens at the end of the scene.
