My oldest is a James Madison University graduate. We were so proud and excited when she graduated from college and we couldn't wait to see what her next step would be.
Fast forward to 2013. She sent in an audition tape to Broadway Dance Center's professional dance semester, and was accepted. The surprise came when she announced to us that she was moving to New York to pursue this musical theatre career. You could have knocked us over with a feather. Yes, we love the fact that she is talented and ambitious. We love watching her perform. But but but... we had no idea that she would go for it. "I don't want to be 60, look back, and say I wish I had gone for it," was her response. How can you deny a person's dream? On the other hand, how can we let her do this?
So, you ask, would did we do? That's what this blog is all about. What we did, what we are doing, and what we will do. Along the way, I hope you will give me your input. I will take you along on this journey, and in my eyes, a journey it is. You see, whatever happens, was meant to be. This journey will lead her to where she is supposed to be, what she is supposed to do. I believe that with all my heart, and I pray for that every day.
So come with us as we look at the ups and downs of this industry. While we are at it, I will take you on my son's journey as well. We think he will take a more traditional route, but as a parent you can never be sure. Stay tuned, and hang on. It's going to be a helluva ride!
