Every girl wants to sparkle

I went with some friends to see the Nutcracker presented by the Colorado Ballet last night. I hadn't seen the show since I was a little girl. I think I was 8 when my mom took me, so I didn't remember much except that I had loved seeing the ballerinas seem to float across the stage. It was like I was watching the show for the first time all over again. I found myself mesmerized by the dancers, their costumes and the stage scenery. The detail in the backdrops reminded me of why I fell in love with art to begin with. The sparkly and magic of the performances reminded me of being a little girl and wanting so much to be able to dance and twirl and sparkle across stage.

So it got me thinking… every little girl wants to be the star of her own show. She wants to sparkle and feel important. She wants to be pretty and have people like her. She wants to do something that she is proud of. How that stage looks and what she is important at differs tremendously.

It's important to provide the encouragement and special moments so every girl can grow up to be a confident woman that feels like she can accomplish anything… so she can sparkle.
