Hughes Magnet

   On Friday, May 8th, LWB Company and Trainees had the opportunity to perform "Follow the North Star" twice at Hughes Magnet Public School. The first performance took place on a stage near the cafeteria, and the second was for a gym class for one of the grades. We were blessed to discover that one of the staff members had been preparing the children for the ballet by giving them all sorts of background information about Harriet Tubman. It was sweet to hear laughter from the kids during certain points in the ballet and to hear them whispering about how they wanted to "defend" the slaves. They clapped along to the songs and were such a fun audience. All in all, it was a wonderful experience! ~Hannah Wallace
