Local Ballet Schools' Coppelia
I went to see the first matinee performance of this production of the famous ballet on Friday because our neighbour’s 16-year-old daughter was dancing in it. I always enjoy such shows because in an effort is made to get all the pupils in the school onstage in one form or another and you get to see all the adorable little ones from 3 years-old and up. I was not disappointed to see in the programme after the names of the principal dancers, that there would be 12 mice, 15 sheep and 35 vegetables! What a joy. Congratulations to Elkanah High School, Table View, Cape Town. Thank you for a lovely afternoon - and well done, Vasti! You danced beautifully.
