Our Ballet company performed Coppelia last weekend. This comic ballet was originally performed in 1870 in Paris.

The last few months our family has been devoted to this show--tons of rehearsals, helping with sewing costumes, selling ads, etc. I was not responsible for any choreography so I actually got to watch from the audience. It was such a beautiful show. The girls have really grown into beautiful dancers and have quite a stage presence when they are performing. We are so proud. The following pictures were taken by another parent. (click on the pictures to see them enlarged.)
