Realizing My Dream
I have a big surprise! I've been working on making a career-shift. I've been keeping my activities quiet until success was assured. And it is!
I've going to realize my lifelong dream -- to become a Rockette! I passed the audition for one of three openings they have in the company. I tried out in January and was called back twice. My final audition was in front of the Rockette's dance-director, April Phoule. She's famous in the dance world.
At first, I doubted I'd have a chance. But April said my age wasn't a big factor if I could hoof. And dance I did. For hours a day, for months. I got my kicks up to eye-level and worked on developing poise. It was hard work, but I was eager and enthusiastic.
April called me last week with the good news. I start working with the other girls next month. Of course I'll have to give up my law practice but that's a small price to pay for living your dream.
Now, where can I buy a dozen leotards and ten pairs of high-quality dance-tights?!
