I am very sorry to read the comments regarding the Dance Showcase at the high school.
I was at the show last Saturday, with my children, and I did not feel at any time that the show was inappropriate. It was mostly a celebration of life, art, creativity, youth and hard work.
These young dancers were gorgeous; the show was refreshing. I think the parents criticizing the show were more concerned with their Puritanism, conservative values or their aging bodies and minds than letting their children attend.
I cannot imagine an 11-year-old thinking about sex or decadence during the show.
I applaud the work and creativity of the Dance Showcase and hope that the School Board members will not act as a censure agency.
I support the producers 100 percent. Go gals, go.
