Ballerina Twirls To Lilting Strains Of “Surfer Girl”
Child’s first big dance recital goes swimmingly
This is not technically Kina’s first recital, which occurred inexplicably less than a year ago and yet feels profoundly distant in my memory of the event. This was, however, the first time Kina has had a recital in a place that could not be reasonably called “Sloane’s living room”. It is also the first time Kina has performed as part of a corps de ballet to the accompaniment of the Beach Boys’ classic hit, “Surfer Girl”. Given the musical selection, it was surprising that surfing didn’t play a larger role in the choreography. It is, however, not surprising that I have had “Surfer Girl” in my head for the entire day today.
