you spend your life gently encouraging your kids to learn dance, an instrument, a language, but gradually you give in and let them do what they want……. years later they say to you – ‘why didn’t you make me do those ballet classes, why did you let me give up piano?……..’ you can’t win.
anyhow, my girls are now interested in all live dance, theatre etc. so i try and choose interesting things for them to see; we always do a show at xmas and maybe one or two throughout the year. so last night i took maude to see sylvie guillem – it was an inspiring evening – i particularly loved the simple sets and music and of course watching her move is enthralling. catch her before she retires the stage.
