Oh, Baby!

Tuesday’s audience for Ballet Idaho Family Series presentation of The Italian Program was truly inspiring….and dedicated! I think I officially met Ballet Idaho’s YOUNGEST audience member ever, a young gentleman born at midnight (April 5th). Reminder: our Family Series performance was at 6 pm on April 6th. Now, that’s some dedication from some loyal Family Series season ticket holders. Introducing young children to all art forms is so important and this baby was here in our auditorium to hear and watch Ballet Idaho excerpts from Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Stravinsky’s Pulcinella. It was ‘date night’ for one very special father and daughter as well. Dad came decked out in a tuxedo and his beautiful little girl was dressed to the nines in her dress and shawl with big blonde curls. Their evening was starting at the ballet and moving to dinner….how precious is this? These moments are memorable in so many ways especially with this young lady who will remember this ‘date night’ with her daddy and will hopefully someday bring her children to see the ballet. -Heather Calkins
