Yesterday my daughter flew to Dublin as tonight she is performing,with the youth dance company she is a member of, at The Pavillion Theatre. No pointe shoes tonight, just lots of spectacular contemporary dance. I am ever so slightly envious, I have never been to Ireland and would love to visit and I have heard some amazing reports about Dublin. Maybe when she returns we will have to plan a visit together and she can show me the sights.
I hope that she has an amazing time and comes back having had a fantasic experience. It’s strange, at the moment I have one child whose provisional driving licence has just come through and another who has just learnt to ride his bike – talk about opposite ends of the scale!
Next week she is also off to Birmingham, where the same dance company have been shortlisted for the final of U-Dance, England, and we are going to watch them. Can’t wait.
Wishing you every success my love. I am so proud of you, and glad that you have found something that you love to do. x
