We went to Z’s dance recital today. It was an experience. She was in four to six year old ballet which is just a line of kids in matching clothes doing radically different dances. None of them understand rhythm.

Besides that we saw a ballet done to “The Old Rugged Cross” that was danced around a cross that you just know was appropriated from a church somewhere. I almost hurt myself laughing. This was followed immediately, immediately mind you, by a group of adult men doing a hip hop dance to “Pants on the Ground.” They were actually awesome.

Michael Jackson songs were much in evidence which I approve of but not the drunken French cabaret cover of “Billie Jean.” Good dance – scary song. I have to admit that I never expected to see a toe shoe ballet dance to “Beat It” but it mostly worked.
