A Mothers' Day Present for Me

Ok, I'm not a mother, obviously. But that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the gift I'm giving my own mother for this most ridiculous of holidays.

I bought us two (excellent) seats for the grand finale of the Jefferson Dancers' Spring 2009 Recital.

According to Wikipedia:
The Jefferson Dancers are the performing leg of the magnet arts dance program at Jefferson High School in Portland, Oregon, United States. The company was founded by Mary Vinton Folberg in the early 1980s.

Since its inception, the Jefferson Dance Program has trained many young dancers who have gone on to further their training in some of the leading performing arts colleges in the country including New York University—Tisch School of the Arts, North Carolina School of the Arts, SUNY Purchase, University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Bennington College, University of Utah and Juilliard. Former Jefferson Dancers are performing all over the world, with professional dance companies.

Basically, they are high schoolers and they are phenomenal dancers.

I am taking mama to the 7:30 PM showing this coming Saturday- tickets available through Ticketmaster (or sometimes, you can just get lucky and buy leftovers at the Will Call box office the day of the show)!
