My little lovely one, Abigail, participated in her first ballet competition this past Sunday at the Holiday Inn in Bridgeport. Linda Giancaspro with Artistic Dance, Inc. ran it very beautifully, and I am grateful to her for having created such a friendly and welcoming environment for all the dancers.

Abigail placed 8th out of the entire 28 who were competing, which included high school students.

We were especially grateful for the visit and support from Kara Engstrom, Anna Cerino, Marissa Behuniak, and Joyce DiLauro. Thanks, guys! I know it was no small task in the first place, but for all of you to face that snowstorm on the way home! We’re feeling the love.

  1. Sandy, I am so glad you posted these photos and the video! We are so happy that Abby was able to compete in this competition and do so well. Her dancing is very inspiring. I wish we could have seen her in person. She seems to have a great deal of natural ability and the heart for dancing that goes with it. Thank you for being such a great support for her.
