"To establish true self-esteem we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives." - Denis Waitley, American motivational speaker and writer, consultant and best-selling author
My kids' performances is one way that helps develop their confidence. They are enjoying every program rehearsals, getting in their costumes and being there on stage. It helps become aware of their own abilities and self-importance.
Grand Ballet Recital at CCP
Dancing at the CCP stage is a dream come true for my daughter. Effie Nanas ballet presented Enchanted Ballet last November. She danced Chinese Tea for the Nutcraker - Clara's Dream and "Butterfly" for Snow White.
Taking photos and videos inside the CCP theater is not allowed, so we only have pre and post photos of her.
Everyone - from the star ballerinas to the little belles - did wonderful performances.

Tinkerbell Butterfly at SGIS Disney Holiday Magic
My daughter was chosen by the school principal to be Tinkerbell Butterfly (a part in Alice's Adventure) in their Christmas program. Good thing, she was able to wear the butterfly costume again.
