3 Word Wednesday
As soon as I read the 3 words for 3 word wednesday, My mind went back to the first time I went to Radio City Music Hall.
I was about 12 years old. My step-fathers three single sisters took my sister and I on a day trip to Manhattan. It's funny, but that was my first trip to Manhattan, even though we only lived 40 minutes away. I instantly LoVED it. I remember going to the wax museum of horrors. I remember being terrified! There were re-enactments of Frankenstein and dracula killing their victims. The reproduction that stood out to me and really scared me the most was the boston strangler. Then it was off to Radio City Music Hall. Today there are many events and concerts held at this beautiful venue. It is most famous for being home to the 'Christmas Spectacular show' each year.Back in the early 30's when it opened until 1979, It was also a movie Theater. So in 1972, Before the famous, amazing Rockettes came out to perform, They first presented a movie. We saw-Butterflies are free. I remember it starred Goldie Hawn and a male actor portrayed a Blind character, but that is all I recall. I wasn't that interested in the film, I was too busy being mesmerized by the Theater itself. After the movie, When the Rockettes danced across the stage, I was speechless,spellbound and goosebumped. I know this was the exact moment my love for the theater and dance began. I was inspired to take dance classes afterwards and though circumstances in my young life didn't allow me to continue my pursuit, It has been one of my deepest desires and fantasies for.. forever.
