Last Sunday my wife and I attended some of the Future Stages Festival Performances held at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. We were there because my 10 year old Granddaughter was dancing with the Jody Phillips Dance Company. We got there early to select our seats so I could photograph some of the performances. The below slide show contains a few photos from:
Lyric Opera of Kansas City - Kids in Opera;
Kansas City Ballet;
Ailey Camp - the Group; and the
Jody Phillips Dance Company.
By the way, the young red-headed boy in the Jody Phillips Dance Company, with a different expression on his face all the time, appeared on the Ellen Show in September 2015, dancing to Taylor Swifts 'Shake It Off'. You can see that performance here. Our Granddaughter is one of the primary dancers with whom he dances . . . .
