Looking up ... Side by side. It would be so easy to write about looking up and gaining height and momentum in life, but this photo is more significant than surface principles to me.
My daughter has looked up to an older dancer in her studio as long as we have attended. The last two years, she has worked with my daughter on solos. And to watch the young lady dance is to feel as if one has just witnessed a secret being unveiled for the first time ... exquisite!
So when I heard that my little one had been paired with her mentor for an upcoming recital performance, I knew it would be meaningful to her. What I wasn't prepared for was moments like this! In tandem, full split leaps, in sync with the one she admires. WOW!
I am so thankful my daughter has people to look up to who pursue excellence. She is certainly matching their stride!
