The music chosen for my pointe solo was "Poor People of Paris",
and I was to be a girl selling flowers on the street.
I learned and practiced the routine,
but my costume didn't come in time for the show!
Mrs. Holst saved the day by finding a pretty costume
in storage at the last minute,
and I was able to do my danceas "Fifi the flower girl".
It was a little scary at first since I had never been before an audience
on stage in toe shoes, and I had several quick turns to do in the routine;
but all went well, and the experience has given me more confidence.
There were four girls including myself who were able to dance on pointe in the show.
