She strolled across the stage where her schoolmates were performing. A pretty girl, immediately recognisable for the special child that she was.
Two songs later, she was easily the best dancer in her group. Others went through the motions- her body was one with the music she was dancing to!
Having tasted applause, you just couldn't keep her away. She wandered into every song, and within moments was able to pick up even the most intricate steps.
Few schools would have allowed her to ‘mess up’ the carefully choreographed show. I am proud my son’s school let her be herself.
