Young Performances

We had a really nice weekend that began with the local young artists performance. Our town has a committee that works to bring the community together through assorted events like pancake breakfasts and group activities. They also hold a youth emerging artists show. We are friends with the organizers, so we went to show our support.

Let me tell you, I was blown away by the level of talent. The kids were so good, ranging in age from 16-20, and they performed original work. Artists in the truest sense. What a great show.

Afterward there was food and then a big dance. We stuck around for the meal, but weren't sure about dancing. A&N's buddies, A&I were there, so they got to play and had a blast. We ended up staying for much of the dance, and the kids had so much fun, it was amazing. A&N danced up a storm, in particular N. He was awesome, he even dabbled in some break dancing, and people stopped by throughout the night to compliment him on his dancing prowess. I have to confess, I've never seen him let loose like that... except, of course, when we're trying to get him into bad at night.

What a fabulous evening, many thanks to CC and their wonderful efforts. Did I mention it's yet another reason to love living here?

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Jan Willem Geertsma for the pic.
