Ludi got her first taste of the theater this year. We enrolled her in a new program at church called “Miss Kathey’s Academy for the Performing Arts.” She spent the last several months learning dances and songs in preparation for a big Christmas production.
Well, show time finally arrived. This week Ludi has had a lot of long nights practicing and then performing, but she did great. We’re very proud of her hard work.
I asked Ludi to write about her experience in her own words. Here’s what she said:
In early May, I started attending Miss Kathey’s Academy. I learned many dances, songs, and drama lines.
I only had six [monthly] practices to learn 15 dances, 20 songs, and 5 lines. Some people from Detroit came to help. They had performed the same show four times.Our title was “An All-American Christmas.” It was fun and scary. The lights were blinding but I love it and hope to carry out stage again.
