I received some really sad news today.
My dance partner from last years recital passed away.
I am just in shock.
He taught me so much.
I can remember when my teacher told me I was going to dance with him. I was so shy at first. I couldn’t even look him in the eye.
Slowly, his confidence encouraged me to come out of my little shell and to try and loose myself in my character.
I would never have been able to match him though. The audience just loved him. Even I just wanted to sit back and watch him perform.
He was only at our little studio for a short time. He left to start his own theatre project in another country.
The last time I saw him he was happy and smiling.
We never know how much time we have on this earth. We just have to try and make the most of it.
