Last Saturday, we attended the Christmas recital for Excalibur Theatre Arts Co. Lots of very excited little dancers, lots of amazing older dancers, lots of Christmas music. A good kick off to the season. Each of the dances were done to the best level of the kids involved. They really were excited about their part in the show.
What really upset me was the behaviour of the audience. At the end of each of the routines, members of the audience just stood up and left. Some were leaving as the next act came on.
How disappointing for the kids on the stage.
And what appalling behaviour for adults!
When you buy a ticket, have the good grace to stay for all the kids.
