The Mountain View Voice newspaper ran a fantastic photo feature of the Festival on Friday, Aug. 23. Here’s the link to it: http://mv-voice.com/news/2013/08/21/a-whirlwind-week-of-dance It truly was a “whirlwind week of dance,” and the Festival Concert today at 3 p.m. will top it off in great style. We had previews of the Polish Folk Dance and the Tap Dance that will appear in today’s concert because Christina Smolen and Audreyanne Delgago-Covarrubias both drew on the dances they will perform for material in their classes. Absolutely thrilling!
After spending 51 weeks thinking about it, planning for it, making phone calls, sending emails, staying awake wondering what to do next, the second season of the International Dance Festival-Silicon Valley begins tomorrow morning. I can’t believe it. I’ve spent so much time trying to get the word out about the Festival, now I wonder what it will be like to be in the first class at 10:30 tomorrow morning. I see ahead to the Festival Concert and realize that we have just Monday-Friday to teach two dances to the Festival Dancers AND to have them ready to perform. Take a deep breath. Here we go.
