That is wonderful to hear and I absolutely cannot take credit for a single ounce of it. We do our best to make sure everyone is comfortable, but it's our participants that have really made that backstage atmosphere something great, and it's become even more prevalent as the years have gone by. You all really respresent something amazing.

My sister was able to share her rosin with the rest of the dancers before they went on that stage--which was quite slippery if you were wearing pointe shoes.
Good to hear the coincidence worked out. The traction issue has come up a couple times this year, so we're going to be looking into what we can do to improve it. Marley has come up a couple times in conversations, but I've also been told we may have to downsize the stage in the process (which I'm not a fan of). Rosin is definitely going on my shopping list though.
