It’s a positive homeschool news story, and it’s about my family homeschooling our daughter through high school especially! Yay! A big thank you to CTV News Atlantic, especially Maria Panopalis and Cory McGraw for doing a beautiful job on our homeschool story.
A Big Day
I got the call on Wednesday requesting an interview. Then on Thursday, we met them at the Conservatory School of Dance since my daughter had “Dance History” class that morning (part of her Professional Training Program). Cory filmed my daughter dancing part of her self-choreographed dance for Taking Steps to Fly (happening this Sunday at the Dalhousie Student Union building). And Maria interviewed us both. It was a terrific experience, especially for my daughter, who plans to train in dance post-secondary and pursue a professional dance career.

Be sure to check out our positive homeschool news story in print as well. Maria covered some different aspects of the interview entirely in the print version, which is terrific as the two together give a better picture of how we homeschool high school.

It’s been a busy time for my daughter. Last weekend she appeared as Drizella in the Cinderella ballet at the Spatz Theatre. For Taking Steps to Fly this weekend, she has prepared two pieces of choreography for adjudication – one the solo you see above and the other a trio. Next month, as mentioned in the news story, she will be starting rehearsals for Billy Elliot at the Neptune Theatre. She is a ballet girl. It’s so exciting as it’s been a while since she’s been in a musical and this is her first gig in a professional theatre.
