There's No Business Like Show Business

It always amazes me how much there is to do in Chelsea during any normal week. But every so often there is SO much to do, that I am downright astounded. This past weekend was one of those times. There was the Relay for Life events the fairgrounds, the Garden Club Plant sale, the Farmer's Market, a guided tour at the Eddy Discovery Center, music at the CCA, and more. [See the May's Past Events for details.]

However, all those fun events could not pull me away from the events we did attend. The morning was my daughter's last soccer game (coached by her Dad), then home for some food and rest. Later in the evening was Dance Arts of Chelsea's annual recital, "There's No Business Like Show Business", in which my daughter performed. She and her classmates represented Mary Poppins and danced to "A Spoonful of Sugar". Yes, it's especially lovely for the proud parents and friends of the performers, but the studio really does put on a nice show every year. The tiny little 3 year olds are adorable, the younger ballet and tap dancers are enthusiastic, and the older ballet, jazz and hip hop students put on a great performance. This year we enjoyed everything from Singing in the Rain, Grease, Chicago, to Cats and more.

After Saturday night's show, my daughter wanted to return on Sunday so she could enjoy the show from the audience. This one was even more fun, because we were able to just relax and enjoy the show. Much to my shock, my 4 year old son also wanted to come with us to see the show again. And he loved it the second time around, too.

Hats off to the teachers, choreographers, staff and students at Dance Arts of Chelsea. It was a great show!
