This is performance preparation season for most ballet schools, which means more than half of each class is dedicated to practicing the dances for the big end of year performance. I knew this time all too well in California. Let’s just say it made finding a lesson for Divagirl a little challenging. After calling around I finally found one director that shared with me that I’d need to look for a school that does not have a recital. Wow, what an idea! He gave me the name of 9th Street Dance in Durham.
