Ballet in the Park

The weekend before last was really such a wash. It thunderstormed Friday night and then Saturday evening. This was especially upsetting because it was the weekend of Dancing Under the Stars. THis is when Twin City Ballet performs all weekend in Kiroli Park and after Saturday evening’s performance there is a cocktail buffet. The company ends the weekend with a free Sunday afternoon performance.

It is my family’s tradition to picnic in the park then walk over for the performance and soak up some sun and arts. This started when I was dancing in the company and continues now as we get to watch “Aunt KK” perform.

Sunday morning started out gray and overcast but the Lord was gracious and by the end of church serves the sky was blue. TCB always puts on an excellent show and I encourage everyone to mark your calendars for next year’s performance. Here’s a taste of what I saw and what you could be seeing here in little ‘ole Monroe.

    I miss them too. It’s amazing how, no matter what kind of awful weather comes on Friday and Saturday, the clouds always seem to part on Sunday for a sweltering performance! It used to be my first “burn of the season”. 🙂 Another great job on the pics!
