Elizabeth...

...at 14 or 15, I forget which, in the Snow Pas from The Nutcracker. Partnered by Freddie Fourier, later of the Dayton Ballet. Choreography by Russell Sultzbach. Or here.

At 14 or 15?!!!!!!

Oh. my. goodness.

That's unbelievable. I suppose it was evident by then that she was destined to be a pro in adulthood. Wow.

I hope she sees your comment. She's lazy about coming here.

That was exquisite!!

You have certainly been blessed with amazingly disciplined and talented children. (PS - Do you dance?)

I took the Authur Murray course when I was 13. I can tear up the floor with the mamba, the samba, the cha-cha, the foxtrot, jitterbug and waltz. I was the Flashdancer before there was such a thing. I knew how to Dirty Dance before it was dirty. Any more questions?

I forgot to mention that that was a long time ago and I've forgotten everything. So I invented a new dance to make up for it. Not sure what to call it. The limpalong, or something like that.

I watched this on election day '08 and found some serenity; it was an astounding performance.

Well, I'm glad. I'll be needing some of that myself.
