The Theatre Calls

Anyone who knows Ethan,
knows he's not very athletic.
He has Development Coordination Disorder.
he has poor motor skills. 
He enjoys playing football (soccer)
but knows he's not very good
as he tends to skip
instead of run
and is starting to notice
I often worry about his confidence.

This summer,
Ethan attended a theatre camp
at the Living Arts Centre
in Mississauga.

In the last two weeks,
I've seen my son grow
more than I have in the last 8 years.
He is confident and proud.
He sings, dances and acts. 
His lack of coordination doesn't seem to
matter here.

Everyone made him feel welcomed.
They complimented his dancing
and acting skills.
They loved his enthusiasm.
He would practice his songs
and lines each night.
And on the day of the show,
he was fantastic!

Thank you Living Arts Centre for a
fantastic summer camp!
