Ahhh the smell of the ice….

Hockey had its own smells and sounds that take you back to the rink. We've all heard those nostalgic phrases taking us back to the smell of the ice, the sound of skates cutting the ice, or a successful slapshot, you know… and the crowd roars!  Are you feeling in chilly now? Can you smell the arena? Do you wish you were in a crowd of cheering fans?

It is so easy and common to let one recital dance run into the next as you watch them back to back in a showcase. More students, more sparkles, more steps. Repeat. But have you ever really thought of what you’re truly watching? I find the performing arts to be such a crazy miracle, and I’ll try to put it into words. What our audience sees is unique to each person, but here are some of the things I see when I’m watching from the wings.  

“Do you want to sing?”

When I was 9, my Mom thought I would like to take singing lessons. “Do you want to sing?” she asked.  She was right. I did. But going to my 30-minute weekly class was just the beginning of my journey with music.  I was amazed that a person could teach me how to sing higher, lower, louder. I didn’t even know it was possible!
