She looked for us in the crowd. She has done it every time since she was a little girl. From church Christmas plays, to school recitals, to award ceremonies - she would look for us and wave. Our eyes met, she smiled, and bounded over to where we were. She was red-faced, breathless and giddy. The long practices, blisters and sore toes, all worth it for one glorious night under the stage lights. All of the dancers were beautiful, but our eyes were fixed on our girl - her captive audience. Scott handed her a bunch of roses, just as he has done after every ballet performance for the past 10 years.
