    “Black Swan” it’s not Alice, but it sounds more like bedlam in ballet flats!

    have you ever been to a rehersal in ballet without the music, sounds like a herd of horses. Klump Klump klump.

    Alice’s conclusion (panel 3) is good in theory; but Nara’s class sounds rather free-form and unstructured….

    Of course, in real life Nara wouldn’t be all dressed up in her costume till the final rehearsal. Before the performance, my oldest granddaughter managed to wear holes in the knees of her tights by walking down the aisle on her knees.

    We had been watching “The Life of Leonardo Da Vinci” on PBS, and my younger daughter, who was taking ballet at the time, was instructed to get leotards. She asked when we were going to get her leonardos.

    Neither one of them became illustrious ballet dancers.

    A friend from school was heavily into ballet. Unfortunately for her ambitions, when puberty struck she became well-endowed: when her body was supposed to be still, parts of her kept moving. That was the end of that.

    As a child, about 9, I was enrolled in Cotillion. Ballroom dancing and manners. Being a TALL boy (I hit my full 6 foot height at 10) I was terribly embarrassed to dance with the short 4 foot girls. But, I found my best friend, a boy from another school, ho was equally tall. And, next year, we found 2 girls who sprouted up over summer. We were a foursome through HS.Hello Scooter, Peggy, and Cindy, where ever you are.
