Yes, that would be Ruby peeking out, she's playing a very curious fish!
This is from the second dance, as is the one above of Ruby. Mike couldn't take pictures of the first dance he was too moved at seeing Ruby up on stage to get the camera out. He and I agreed that sometimes It's better to live an experience in real time rather than watch it through a tiny screen. The woman in black is one of the teachers, Ximena Puente.
This is Jessie, I wrote about how Jessie welcomed Ruby on her first class. I don't think that without Jessie's encouragement, Ruby would have had the confidence to stay with the group. She's a good teacher and she's an amazingly gifted dancer.
This is Jessie, moving, dancing. We all agree it's one of our favourite dance photographs ever!
See that little girl in the middle, with the orange top and the red flower? That's our Ruby taking her final bow. If you click on these pictures you can see the look on her face.
We owe the wonderful staff of The Propeller Dance Company for the encouragement they gave all the kids
but especially our Ruby!
