Día de los Reyes Parade (Three Kings Day Parade)

The twelfth day of Christmas is January 6th, the Feast of Epiphany, also called The Day of Three Kings.  On this eve, gifts are exchanged for the holidays in most Spanish speaking and some European countries.  Its a big day for kids.  The Cary “3 Kings Day Parade”  at Bond Park is presented by  Diamante ,  a non profit dedicated to the preservation, development, and promotion of the culture, heritage, and artistic expressions of the diverse Latino/Hispanic population in North Carolina.  The parade, music and dancing are all prelude to a lot of giving by Diamante and its supporters (like Toys For Tots and local grocers)  to those who have, not so much.  It felt like a big family.  The gallery is here:   3 Kings Day 2012  .


A Very Cary Christmas Card

Companies of the Cary Ballet Conservatory will perform “A Very Cary Christmas” at  Jones Auditorium, Meredith College, next Saturday.  Performances are at 11 AM, 3 PM and 7PM.  Even Scrooge would grin.


A Very Cary Christmas

The other half of my extraordinary Saturday was spent photographing rehearsals at the Cary Ballet Conservatory.   They are working towards the performance of  “A Very Cary Christmas” on December 18th.

Seeing the development of dancers, from small to tall is extraordinary.  I do not understand what drives someone to pay the price of gaining competence in ballet.  The result is, like music,  powerful and fulfilling and wonderful.

Window light floods the studios of the Cary Ballet Conservatory.  Electric light floods the stage of the African Children’s Choir.  Grace and motion, energy and voice.  It was an extraordinary Saturday.
