McCardles Dance Review 50th Anniversary

20130608 mccardles reviewYesterday was the 50th Anniversary of McCardles Dance Studio. As much as Jean does and doesn’t want to admit, she has been there for over half of them! This weekends show was their biggest and best show I’ve ever seen. Lots of great dancing and reflection. Every show I see has a family atmosphere, but that may just be because Jean is always crying.

The highlight for the Giunto family was when Jean and Aly performed a duet to a dance Jean danced to when she was 10 years old. 9 to 5. It had a lot of special meaning for Jean as well as her mom who was sobbing like a baby at the first step.

Jean had a couple dances and Aly had several… 6 or 7 or something like that.  Aly danced incredibly and pushed through a twisted ankle on her last 2 numbers. She dance through it without a crack in her smile and cried in pain as soon as she got off stage. I’m pretty proud of her for sticking through it.

Love you two, and here’s to many more years at McCardles Dance Studio.
