The other night I went with some friends to see this dance phenomenon which had beautiful choreography and amazing music. For most of the night I was ready to hop out of my seat and dance a little Irish jig in the aisle. I wished all of the family’s little dancers were there because I was quite sure they would’ve done just that-as compelling as the music is. As I entered our “theatre” downtown I was surprised at how much personality it has, especially for how small it is but it was a nice surprise because my $23 landed me a stellar seat.
On the way there I asked the other girls (who had set up the outing) to give me some background so that I could be an educated patron of the arts. To my surprise none of them really knew anything about it. As I sat through the entire show trying to figure out the storyline and background (because I didn’t want to pay $15 for a program when I could get it free online), I realized that I took for granted all those times my mom did her research before presenting us with a cultural experience. She is always ready to answer our questions and give us background be it for a painting, a musical or a location. I vowed that next time I’d learn from her example and be ready to educate myself and anyone else interested.
