Eighteen-year-old granddaughter Audrey is in the trainee program at the Joffrey Ballet School in NYC. She gives me hope, courage, and optimism to continue writing everyday! Her love for ballet and passion to dance began at seven-years-old when she started ballet classes. At eight-years-old she joined the International Ballet Academy and in her teenage years had worked her way up to the professional division. Even off stage she continues to show perfect creative form having fun. The thought of her path to success is inspiration for me to seriously work hard at writing, and have some fun with it at the same time!
