Prodigy Event 11/2009

by Administrator on Nov.28, 2009, under Events, Show

About two weeks ago, we had the (almost) annual Legacy Shop Christmas Tree Lighting event. It was a perfect time here in Dallas to get out on closed streets and wander around with clowns and other animations waiting for Santa to light up our tree.

One of the animation we saw this year was just amazing, at least to me. It reconciled me with the art of dance! This is thanks to Prodigy Dance and Performing Art Center. They are very local to me, as they are based in Plano in the Legacy Shop area. The spectacle that their students put up that day was astonishing.

The whole background blurred way the moment the first dancer was hitting her first movement. Everyone went from a casual day to watching a full blown spectacle like in an auditorium. Chattering gave place to, first, curiosity and, then, admiration. I could not resist the envy of photographing their students. They were elegant but strong. They were controlling their movement but they had the insouciance of their youth. They have inspired me that day.

Here is a slide show I put together. It think it says it all.
