Several of the dancers’ parents take hundreds of great photos of the rehearsals and performances of the Oak Ridge Civic Ballet Association. Last week I posted four pictures that I received via email from one of the parents. This week I received twelve more photos and a promise of even more to come. I played one of the ugly stepsisters in the Cinderella portion of “Once Upon a Time” on April 13.
I chose four favorites from among the photos sent by Yvonne Dalschen. I especially like the pictures that show Dr. Brandon Cottrell doing the worm and leaping for joy at the sight of Prince Charming, played by Taylor Gober. In first shot, Brandon and I are taunting Cinderella, played by Meredith Graves during the matinee performance. Meredith is “en pointe” in the photo. In the final picture, Brandon and I are diving for Cinderella’s lost slipper as twelve Clock Elves look on.
