Two of my grandaughters go to dance school in Nanaimo and I was invited to attend the year end dance recital ‘Solid Gold’. It turned out to be a tremendous production held at the Port Threater with dozens of dances lasting for just a few minutes, all with elaborate costumes. What a delight! The youngest dancers were about three and the oldest were grandparent age. Each class danced and there were awards and lots of flowers. I was impressed.
