Just came back from a screening of this fun movie at a coffee shop that made me feel like I was back in college. This is not bad thing. I’d seen the movie once before, but I hadn’t heard of it at all until at least 15 years after it came out in 1989. Surprising due to my intense and long-term LOVE of the 1987 dance movie with the same choreographer.
Can I enter/win a dance contest at the beach and make out with my goofy but excellent dance partner now, please?
ok. i’m going to go cry now.
Is there anything Kiernan Shipka can’t do? Here she is participating in Inside the Actors Studio with her Mad Men co-stars, like a boss.
This young woman is a triple-threat — she can act, dance, and dress herself.
Even Jon Hamm is hiding his face in shame because this twelve-year-old is outshining him in front of James Lipton.
She is my hero.
“These lace-topped silk skimmers are real-deal dancing shoes - bot are the same shape, until they become molded to your left and right feet. Handcrafted by Pretty Ballerinas, in the same village where they were first made almost a century ago.”
OMG THESE SHOES!
They are beautiful on their own (I love lace and I love ballet shoes), but also, that box! So precious (almost too precious). Oh if only I had $200 to throw away on impractical shoes.
